The mission of Solliance is to create jobs. The research institute does this by continuously developing the latest PV technologies and making them available to companies. Solliance wants to connect the worlds of science and business in order to create a sustainable energy system. In this way, we are contributing to the climate goals set for 2020.
Thin-film solar cells are the future. We are committed to further development and application of this technology. This will allow Europe to strengthen its economic position in relation to other regions.
Solliance translates what has already been proven academically into high-tech production methods. We do this together with the business community, in Shared Research Programmes. The goal is to together develop production processes and systems until they can be scaled up to an economically viable level.
In concrete terms, Solliance contributes to the value chain of companies by developing high tech machinery and high quality PV material for panels and semi-finished products.
