CHEETAH knowledge Exchange Portal is an integral part of CHEETAH project web site powered and developed by DTE unit of ENEA ©2014 - 2018 with support of all CHEETAH Partners. Starting from early 2018, CHEETAH KEP moved its first steps to became EERA Knowledge Exchange Platform for PV Technology (KEPT-PV). A new name for the previous platform characterizing our will to serve better and more efficiently in Knowledge Exchange a wider European and International PV RTD community.

CHEETAH Final Event - European Solar Technology Forum

30 November 2017 - was held in Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie (HZB), premises in  Berlin, Germany,  CHEETAH Final Event - European Solar Technology Forum

CHEETAH’s objectives for the 4 years of the program were threefold:

  • Developing new concepts and technologies for waferbased crystalline silicon PV (modules with ultrathin cells), thin film PV (advanced light management) and organic PV (very low-cost barriers), resulting in (strongly) reduced cost of environmentally benign/abundant/non-toxic materials and increased module performance.
  • Fostering long-term European cooperation in the PV R&D sector, by sharing knowledge, organizing workshops, exchange and training researchers inside and outside Europe, efficient use of infrastructures, promoting best practices and standards.
  • Accelerating the implementation of innovative technologies in the PV industry, by a strong involvement of SolarPower Europe and IT-InnoEnergy in this program.

This event as an unique networking opportunity to get to know leading experts from research and also industry. summarises 4 years’ research results, and how to implement and continue the innovations in the years to come in these key areas:

  • Water based Crystalline Silicon - "Getting below a 100 microns"
  • Thin Film PV - « Thinner and more efficient through smart cells »
  • Organic PV & Perovskite - « Instrinsic long term stability without special encapsulation »
