Guest lecture, Prof. Eicke R. Weber: The role of photovoltaics in our future renewables-based energy system

Prof. Eicke Weber, Director of Fraunhofer ISE, visited Finland for the first time and gave a guest lecture at Micronova on Future of Photovoltaics.

Prof. Weber visited our group and research facilities at Micronova on April 24th, 2015. Many of our researchers have had scientific exchange at Fraunhofer ISE and vice versa. The collaboration between Aalto and ISE will continue with several silicon-PV related research topics.

During the visit Prof. Weber gave a seminar presentation with the title  "The role of photovoltaics in our future renewables-based energy system". The talk raised a lot of discussion among the audience in a full lecture hall. His talk received also interest in national media, see e.g. the article in Tekniikka&Talous.
