In Catania for the Photovoltaic of the Future

Published on Wednesday, 14 June 2017

“The sponsor of the event at the Enel Lab in Catania is the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission.”

The Enel Innovation Lab in Passo Martino already hosted this important international event in 2012. The fact that the JRC asked the Enel Laboratory to organise a measurement campaign for the second time confirms the technical-scientific credibility of the structure, which aims to stimulate research and innovation in the energy sector.

In recent days, EGP also signed an agreement with the Institute for Microelectronics and Microsystems (IMM) of the National Research Council (CNR) to create a laboratory dedicated to the study of renewable technologies within the Enel Innovation Lab.

“EGP’s innovation group, together with CNR-IMM, will develop technologies for new-generation photovoltaic modules with higher energy yields.”

Built in the 1980s, the Passo Martino site was integrated into Enel Green Power’s Innovation and Sustainability Unit in 2015. It now houses laboratories specialised in renewable sources that allow for the experimentation of innovative technologies in solar thermal and photovoltaic, in microgrids, storage and in wind.
