// Projects

ZSW is one of Europe's leading research institutes in the photovoltaic sector. The photovoltaic experts are working in numerous research projects funded by the federal state, German government, EU and/or industrial partners in order to improve not only materials, processes and efficiencies for solar cells and modules but also the performance capability and long-term stability of PV modules and systems. PV storage systems that optimise the self-consumption of solar power and strategies for the grid-friendly operation of PV systems in the smart grid are the subject of further projects.
