Lab visits

INES industrial lab visits

Sustainable Places 2020 will offer exclusive visits of INES industrial labs. In particular, INES hosts the R&D center of reference for photovoltaic high efficiency solar cells. The technology is based on crystalline silicon heterojunction. A record performance of 24,4% has been released on full-size cells. Tandem cells are under development to reach efficiency well above 25%.

Places for the visits will be limited and offered on a first-come first-served basis.

INES is the reference center in France, and one of the first in Europe, dedicated to research, innovation and training on solar energy. Set up with the support of the Savoie Departmental Council and Rhône-Alpes Regional Council, it hosts teams from the CEA and the University
