Welcome to the Institute for Solar Energy Research in Hamelin (ISFH)
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Rolf Brendel
Solar energy is a must for a successful switch to renewable energies. Solar energy is environmentally benign, is available anywhere, can be used by many at small and large scale, and generates power close to the location of consumption. And: The rapid rise of the world wide use of solar energy is a great chance for our economy.
For these reasons we foster solar energy by doing applied research in the fields of “Photovoltaics” and “Solar Systems”. “Innovation with impact” is our motto since 30 years. We are cooperating with the industry, with other research institutions, and with universities. ISFH is associated with the “Leibniz Universität Hannover”.
We are happy to answer your requests, whether you are from industry and interested in co-operations or in using our scientific services, or whether you are a student interested in one of our advertised academic works or whether you are interested in one of our job openings. Your ideas count!
