Accelerating Emerging Photovoltaics: from the Lab to the Fab
The recent joint Sino-German Workshop on “Printable Thin-Film Photovoltaics & Applications” illuminated a promising path for solar energy. Hosted collaboratively by Jinan University, South China University of Technology, and FAU, the event united passionate minds dedicated to advancing renewable energy. The contributions highlighted the journey of groundbreaking solar technologies from laboratory prototypes to large-scale production, igniting inspiration among attendees about the possibilities ahead.
A noteworthy aspect showcased the influence of education and collaboration: many former students from the i-MEET are now esteemed professors in China. Their contributions underscore the importance of sharing knowledge and international partnerships in driving innovation.
Another uplifting moment during the workshop was the active participation of students from i-MEET, SFF (Solar Factory For the Future), and HIERN (Helmholtz Institute Erlangen-Nürnberg for Renewable Energy). Their enthusiasm and dedication to learning and contributing to the solar technology field exemplify the promising future of renewable energy.
Together, we’re crafting a more sustainable future through innovation and commitment.
