Links with Fraunhofer ISE

With a staff of above 1300, Fraunhofer ISE is the largest solar energy research institute in Europe. The work at the Institute ranges from the investigation of scientific and technological fundamentals for solar energy applications, through the development of production technology and prototypes, to the construction of demonstration systems.

Due to its high solar irradiation levels and its special geographical conditions, Chile is an ideal site for many solar technologies which have been developed at Fraunhofer ISE or which are currently under investigation. At Fraunhofer CSET these technologies will be adapted and optimized for Chilean conditions.
