Fraunhofer ISE, with a staff of over 1200, is the largest solar research institute in Europe. In five business areas – Photovoltaics, Energy-Efficient Buildings, Hydrogen Technologies and Electrical Energy Storage, Solar Thermal Power Plants and Industrial Processes Power Electronics, Grids and Smart Systems – The institute develops materials, components, systems and processes. A special feature of Fraunhofer ISE is its excellent technical infrastructure – three of its photovoltaics labs are based at the SIC:

PV-TEC – Photovoltaic Technology Evaluation Center
Production and measurement technology for crystalline silicon solar cells

Module-TEC – Module Technology Evaluation Center
Production and process technology as well as extensive analysis equiment for Module Technology

Con-TEC – Concentrator Technology Evaluation Center
Development technology for new generation PV modules with high and low concentration factors
