A pioneer in solar energy research since 1976, BGU is leading the world in new technologies and materials.
From the development of optics for concentrating sunlight to the physics of dust removal from solar surfaces, to the production of organic, inexpensive photovoltaic cells, BGU researchers are at the forefront of solar energy research.
At the Ben-Gurion National Solar Energy Center, scientists are experts in concentrated photovoltaics (CPV) that focus light—up to 15,000 suns — into small, highly efficient photovoltaic (PV) modules. At the Ilse Katz Institute for Nanoscale Science and Technology, researchers are exploring new PV materials.
