ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY PV MODULES

InnoModu reseachers are working on the next generation of photovoltaic cells and modules.

SUSTAINABLE GOALS

InnoModu is an industry-driven research project on European level striving to develop the next generation of photovoltaic cells and modules. The target is to drastically reduce the silver content in solar cells and the share of lead used in a module to nearly zero, bringing considerable cost and material reductions as well as environmental imrovements. in addition, the novel technology will allow more efficiency in the production process with clear market benefits for the industrial partners and the environment. 

 

THE CONSORTIUM

In this project, eight partners from industry and science, are bundeling their know-how. The industrial partners are KIOTO, Energetica, Soltabond, Ulbrich, RENA and teamtechnik. The applied research centres AIT (Austrian Institute of Technology) and SAL are contributing their specific expertise in PV module measuring and testing methods to international standards and a deep insight in physical and sensory background.

 

ENERGY RESEARCH FOR EUROPE

The project is realized within the European programme SOLAR-NER.NET, a network bringing together european programmes in the field of solar electricity technologies in the European Research Area.
