Project Sharc25

29. October 2018 , Empa, Duebendorf, AKADEMIE

We are pleased to announce a “workshop on advanced characterization and novel concepts in CIGS solar cells” within the framework of the EU project Sharc25. The workshop will be held at Empa in Dübendorf (Switzerland) on October 29, 2018.

 

Sharc25 is a European research project with focus on in-depth characterization of high efficiency CIGS thin-film solar cells to reveal and overcome loss mechanisms in order to further improve the power conversion efficiency.

The eleven Sharc25 partners are:

 

  • ZSW, GERMANY
  • Empa, SWITZERLAND
  • University of Luxembourg, LUXEMBOURG
  • University of Rouen, FRANCE
  • University of Parma, ITALY
  • Aalto University, FINLAND
  • IMEC, BELGIUM
  • HZB, GERMANY
  • INL, PORTUGAL
  • Flisom AG, SWITZERLAND
  • NICE Solar Energy GmbH, GERMANY

 

Further information about Sharc25 project is available at: www.sharc25.eu

 

AIM & SCOPE OF THE WORKSHOP

This full-day event will provide opportunities to learn about the advancements made through the Shrac25 project and to discuss with experts from the consortium and with external speakers on advanced characterization and novel concepts in CIGS solar cells. Key problems limiting the efficiencies and possible approaches for achieving efficiencies beyond 25% will be discussed. Additionally, it is envisaged that interaction of academia and industry will identify topical research themes for supporting industrial developments and advancing state of the art of CIGS technology.
