Reflectors to bifacial PV-cells are simulated and prototyped in this work. The aim is to optimize the reflector to specific latitudes, and particularly northern latitudes. Specifically, by using minimum semiconductor the reflector must be able to deliver the electrical power required at minimum the condition of solar travel above the horizon, worst weather condition etc. We will test a bifacial PV-cell with a retroreflector, and compare the output with simulations combined with local solar data.
