Photovoltaics (PV) are semiconductor-based devices that convert light into electricity. Promising new technologies need to demonstrate high performance, reliability and scalability of manufacture. In parallel, consumers, governments and manufacturers need to have confidence in how much energy new and established PV technologies will generate under realistic operational conditions.
Our expertise spans from energy materials characterisation and metrology in the nanoscale, up to PV systems assessment and consultancy. Our multidisciplinary team has led and delivered many collaborative R&D projects with clients ranging from universities to multinational engineering companies. We have developed novel techniques and bespoke instruments for PV materials, device and module characterisation. Our experts are very active in the development of international standards, ensuring that they are effective and meet the needs of stakeholders.
We offer advanced measurement, testing consultancy and R&D services with the broad goal of supporting the development, competitiveness, exploitation and deployment of photovoltaic technologies in the UK.
We provide confidence in the performance and reliability of photovoltaic materials and technologies, contributing towards worldwide net zero targets. We specialise in:
We offer a comprehensive suite of tests, analysis and consultancy support to help customers understand the processing and performance behaviour of materials through their full life cycle.
Our research and measurement solutions support innovation and product development. We work with companies to deliver business advantage and commercial success. Contact our Customer Services team on +44 20 8943 7070
