Solar energy is available everywhere for free and it is available in large quantities at statistically predictable times. Solar energy is therefore one of the major corner stones of our future renewable energy system and of Germanys “Energiewende”.
Harvesting solar energy is, however, not for free since high-tech products are required for this such as solar modules, thermal collectors, intelligent system controls and storages.
The Institute for Solar Energy Research Hamelin (ISFH) faces the grand challenge of developing efficient solar systems and of developing low-cost components for photovoltaics and solar thermal.
We offer our know-how and research infrastructure for co-operations to industrial partners. Thus our research shall help the companies to generate better solar products in shorter times.
We also conduct publicly funded leading edge research for solar energy. The academic and practical knowledge generated shall help to spread the use of solar energy worldwide.
ISFH is associated to the Leibniz University of Hanover and invests a lot of efforts in the educating tomorrow’s top solar researchers.
ISFH is a non-profit organization owned and financially supported by the State of Lower Saxony.
