“Max Mittag is the head of the team PV Module Assessment at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE, Freiburg (Germany). His current work includes the analysis of power losses in photovoltaic modules (cell-to-system analysis), techno-economical assessments, Cost of Ownership calculation, Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) as well as the development new photovoltaic module concepts.
He is an expert in module optimization and loss channel analysis and has been working in the development of several new PV module designs (TPedge, ConstructPV mosaic module etc.) for more than ten years. He studied industrial engineering and management at the Freiberg University of Mining and Technology. In 2010 he completed his diploma thesis at Fraunhofer ISE and joined the department for PV module technology.”
