Testbed for Solar Energy Solutions

<p>Solar testbed has a given roll in the innovation system for solar energy solutions. It can best be described as an informal innovation cluster led by RISE.</p>

RISEs facilities consists of:

  • Outdoor test site for solar products and systems
  • Artificial Sun and flash-tester for performance testing of solar collectors and solar PV modules. Solar Array Simulator for inverter tests.
  • Climate chambers and other material testing resources
  • Equipment for performance testing of small research solar cells
  • Monochromator for spectral characterization of solar cells
  • Equipment for performance testing/ error detection in the field
  • Full-scale demonstration of complete system and its integration via RISEs Research Villa

The Solar Test bed is based on a collaboration between academia, institute sector and industry. The cluster and its in-depth test beds serve as an open platform for all its stakeholders.
