“No energy can be made available as quickly as renewable energies, if only we want to”.

– Hermann Scheer (2006)

We are making solar energy fit for the future.

Since 2005, we have been steadily increasing the efficiency of photovoltaics and simultaneously reducing their cost. This is our means to an end: positive research outcomes that directly benefit industry and thus also the whole of society. We set global standards and share our knowledge and expertise with industry as well as with young talents from all nations. We do this because at ISC Konstanz we have only one ultimate goal – to make clean solar energy affordable and accessible around the globe. This is the only way the energy transition can succeed.

Research for a sunny future!
