Photovoltaic Systems & Battery Energy Storage

The AIT Center for Energy combines more than 20 years of know-how in the field of photovoltaics with cutting-edge laboratory infrastructure. We support our customers with innovative research, development and testing of solar cells, PV modules and PV power plants, to meet highest quality and performance levels. ​

We offer tailored data-driven solutions for the photovoltaic sector, such as performance and failure diagnosis to maximize the efficiency of PV assets, thus ensuring that our clinets have a competitive advantage in these global markets.

Photovoltaic module testing

AIT tests the quality and performance of photovoltaic modules and components in its accredited testing laboratory. AIT provides support in the development of customised solutions and scientific consultation.

Photovoltaic system quality assessment

Through our comprehensive due diligence examination and technical consultation, investors, project developers, insurers, and facility operators benefit. We thereby lay the foundation for secure and profitable investments.

Data-driven solutions for PV systems.

AIT offers digital tools for precise performance and fault diagnosis of PV systems at the module, string, and inverter level. Action recommendations are derived from this to increase the performance of the systems.

Integrated Photovoltaics

AIT offers tools and solutions for PV integration in agriculture (agrophotovoltaics), buildings (BIPV), and public infrastructure. The choice of the appropriate technology combination, taking into account longevity, efficiency, and economic viability, is crucial.


AIT develops technologies, manufacturing processes, and characterization methods for thin-film solar cells and functional coatings for energy applications. We offer solutions for green hydrogen, transparent heating elements, optoelectronics, and solar cells.
