Intelligent Photovoltaic Module Technologies

The overall R&D goal of the K-project IPOT is a significant improvement of the overall system effectiveness of photovoltaic modules. The underlying individual research foci comprise improving the system efficiency factors, the stability and operational life-time of PV modules and to optimize the production processes involved.This project is co-funded within the R&D Program COMET - Competence Centers for Excellent Technologies by the Federal Ministry of Transport, Innovation and Technology (BMVIT) and Federal Ministry of Science, Research and Economy (BMWFW), managed on their behalf by the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG).
