PV modules are very sensitive to heat.
If the temperature exceeds 25 °C, the efficiency of conventional photovoltaic modules decreases.
Thus, due to climate change, increased average temperatures as well as extreme hot summers have a negative effect on the efficiency of solar power generation.
Recent studies show that PV modules in an agrivoltaics-system heat up significantly less than modules in a conventional ground-mounted system.
The plants underneath the system evaporate water and create a microclimate that cools the backs of the modules.
