The Swiss non-profit research and technology organisation, the Swiss Centre for Electronics and Microtechnology (CSEM), today unveiled new PV facilities to include a 500m² cleanroom and 600m² module testing and production laboratories.
The new extensions to the PV Centre were made possible through funding from the Federal Council. The PV Centre in in Neuchâtel was founded three years ago and is a silicon cell-testing site that employs heterojunction technology (HJT), and has developed white and coloured panels.
“In the array of technologies developed by CSEM, photovoltaics are given special focus,” said Mario El-Khoury, CSEM's CEO, in a statement. “As this becomes more widespread, the world can dream of a cleaner future, where quality of life is maintained. This aspiration is a core value for our company.”
