Dr Rahimifard is working in CREST with Professor Ralph Gottschalg on the Stability and performance of photovoltaics (STAPP) project.

This programme aims to deliver improvements in understanding of the stability and long-term performance of photovoltaic modules; develop methods to describe holistic system performance; and reduce the uncertainty in life-time energy yield prediction from PV systems. A multidisciplinary, cross-national project, working across Universities in the UK and India and with the support of  industry and charitable organisations, this presents an opportunity to determine and map the potential for photovoltaic energy in varying climates and operating environments and propose solutions that will form a platform for step change in photovoltaic technology.

RCUK and the Indian Department of Science and Technology have each awarded £2.4 million for this project: EPSRC Grant Details - STAPP
