Can the energy supply be completely green in the future?
Nov 16, 2017

From the foundation of IMEC in 1984, it's research already focused on photovoltaic energy. In the early years it was on silicon solar cells. Now the focus is shifted towards thin film organic solar cells. In the Energyville project at the Thor site in Waterschei-Genk, IMEC, UHasselt (IMO-IMOMEC), KULeuven and VITO join forces to build clean energy, cheaper and with a high efficiency.

With thin film solar cells, Bart Vermang wants to build flexible and/or transparant PV solar cells. So they can be used in applications where the silicon solar cells can't be used, like walls, windows,....
