Since our testing programs began over a decade ago, industry stakeholders have been seeking PVEL’s guidance on module procurement. PVEL and Exawatt have collaborated on a unique approach to forecasting, developing a bottom-up cost model based on the various components in a PV module.
The Battery Technology and Cost Forecast (BTAC) is a biannual report for which PVEL and Exawatt have jointly developed a methodology that leverages bottom-up cost analysis, based on data gathered from more than 180 publicly traded companies throughout the lithium-ion cell supply chain, combined with a manufacturing model that contains over 100 input variables. Additionally, manufacturer top-down forecasts and industry trends across the past 5 years are incorporated into the model.
Asset owners can prevent connector failure in the field with installation, inspection and O&M best practices from PVEL and HelioVolta.
