We caught up with Steve Pester, Principal Consultant from the BRE National Solar Centre to find out how work funded by the BRE Trust is helping improve safety and performance of photovoltaic systems.

The research found that minor components installed incorrectly can lead to poor performance and safety issues in photovoltaic systems.  This was then translated into a guide on DC isolators for photovoltaic systems, available here.

The next phase of research is looking at larger systems including commercial applications and solar farms as well as international markets.
