SUSOLTECH (Sustainable Solar Cell Technology) is a Research Centre for Environment-friendly Energy Research.
SUSOLTECH (Research Center for Sustainable Solar Cell Technology) is a Research Centre for Environment-friendly Energy Research.
SUSOLTECH joins the leading Norwegian research groups in solar cell technologies with leading companies in the solar cell industry. The overall goal of the Centre is to increase the size and number of jobs in the domestic solar cell industry. This will be done by reaching the following secondary goals support this goal:
-To develop the most environmentally friendly production processes for Si feedstock for high efficiency, crystalline Si-based solar cells in the World.
-To develop processes for making affordable, high performance Si ingots and wafers, as well as selected materials and processes allowing for producing solar cells with efficiencies above 25% for Cz Si and 21% for HPMC Si.
-To demonstrate lower electricity costs, improved performance and improved sustainability due to the developed technologies on cell, module and system level.
-To contribute to a cost-effective and sustainable growth in the use of solar energy systems in Norway, with a particular emphasis on the building sector.
– To establish a Solar Industry Forum which will generate new business, projects and activities among the industry and research partners in the Centre.
