oPEN Lab | Project Partner
The photovoltaic department within IMEC performs research on new materials, concepts and photovoltaic device and system solutions as a renewable energy source and as an enabling technology for the energy transition. IMEC works on crystalline-silicon solar cells and modules and thin-film (organic and inorganic) solar cells focusing on improving efficiency, reliability, and industrial manufacturability. The IMEC PV group is part of EnergyVille, a collaboration between the Belgian research partners KU Leuven, VITO, IMEC and UHasselt in the fields of sustainable energy and intelligent energy systems. All of IMEC’s PV activities are located on the EnergyVille Campus in Genk.
