ThermTest has now completed its testing on the BioSolar BioBacksheet, claiming that it can improve the output of solar panels by dissipating heat faster. In the tests, the BioBacksheet is claimed to have reached a thermal conductivity 70% higher than current petroleum based backsheets.
“We were pleasantly surprised by this finding. We designed the BioBacksheet with the goal of being green, lower cost and higher durability. But now, BioBacksheet has a much more valuable feature — improved power output. We are working closely with one of our partners to optimize the integration of BioBacksheet with their panels to improve efficiency and lower cost. We have just attended the InterSolar 2010 Conference and met with a number of panel manufacturers. The interest in BioBacksheet was very high and confirmed for our team that we truly have a breakthrough product,” said Dr. David Lee, CEO of BioSolar.
