Research Center for Photovoltaics is aiming a sustainable development of photovoltaic technologies to realize the national energy security, low carbon society, economic growth and job creation at the same time with a comprehensive and systematic approach. To this end, we are investing;
1) device and system technologies under the intimate collaboration with private sectors.
2) primary reference cell calibration and neutral characerization of devices and systems.
3) fundamental science for next-generation devices.
We are also emphasizing the international standardization and regional collaboration of the outcome of our research.
Collaboration with Renewable Energy Research Center/Fukushima Renewable Energy Research Institute, AIST(FREA) will also play a crucial role to propel ahead our mission.
