Combining forces in solar technology research
Combining forces in the area of research into the next generation of solar cells. Solliance was founded with that goal in 2010. The research organisation is a joint venture of ECN, TNO, Holst Centre and imec. Together with the academic partners TU Eindhoven, University of Hasselt, TU Delft and Forschungszentrum Jülich, the research institutes can play a significant role in global research into the solar technology of the future.
The venture was given wings when the province of North Brabant decided to support the combining of forces in the form of a grant of 28.2 million euros. This allowed us to set up our own research location in Eindhoven on the High Tech Campus, which was opened in June 2014.
The Solliance location has around 2,000 square metres of production space, with several test rigs for the production of thin-film PV modules. At the Solliance research location, science and industry work together to further improve the production processes. The building also includes an additional 1,800 square metres of offices and laboratories. All of this is at the service of R&D in the field of next-generation solar cells.
