The photovoltaic laboratory

  • provides innovative solutions to companies concerning production and management of sun-generated electricity,
  • combines scientific studies with implementation of projects,
  • helps optimising costs of electricity consumption,
  • provides individual solutions for specific needs of the Customers.

The laboratory is equipped with:

  • Photovoltaic Energy Blocks composed of poly- and monocrystalline photovoltaic modules, inverters and workstation machines (programmable monitoring, steering and synchronising modules), which create four research installations of 10 kW power each.
  • Services and Steering Centre is a technological platform that uses high-tech ITC equipment with integrated managing software, which is used to supervise operation of the Laboratory’s research installations and which supports optimisation of costs of electricity consumption.
  • We conduct audits of the process of purchasing and delivering electricity.
  • We prepare programmes for lowering costs of electricity consumption.
  • We adjust measurement and billing systems professionally.
  • We provide services of monitoring and optimisation of electricity consumption costs.
  • We modernise measurement and billing systems.
  • We provide services of connecting photovoltaic systems to distributed systems.
  • We provide services of connecting photovoltaic systems to territorially dispersed electroenergetic industrial installations for the end users.
  • We sell and provide electricity generated in photovoltaic generators.
  • We organise conferences and seminars on the optimisation of costs of electricity consumption and electricity generation in photovoltaic installations.
  • We organise courses and workshops on the use of photovoltaic technologies in order to improve the energetic efficiency of industrial end users.
  • We cooperate with industrial parks and technology centres within the scope of development of a photovoltaic research infrastructure used for transferring scientific innovations to the industry.
