Post date: 11/07/2018 - 14:22
The Photovoltaic Technology Evaluation Center PV-TEC at Fraunhofer ISE was officially reopened this week, complete with brand new equipment. In February 2017, a fire had damaged the facility in the Solar Info Center in Freiburg, Germany, and it was completely unusable. Since the fire, ongoing projects had been delayed, but could be continued in other laboratories. »Fitted out with new equipment, PV-TEC will now enter the next level of technical development in photovoltaics,« says the Fraunhofer ISE. The objectives are creating higher solar cell efficiency, improving productivity in the field of process technology and helping with the restart of PV cell and module production in Europe, which is an aim of both the research community and industry.
