Solliance is a partnership of R&D organizations from the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany working in thin film photovoltaic solar energy. In order to strengthen the EU region’s position as a world player in PV, Solliance is creating the required synergy by consolidating and coordinating the activities of 250 researchers in industry, at research institutes and universities.
Various state-of-the-art laboratories and pilot production lines are jointly used for dedicated research programs which are executed in close cooperation with the solar business community. Solliance aims to generate revolutionary new PV concepts (eg PV integrated in buildings, infrastructure, floating devices, transport, products, and power storage/conversion systems) by the use of thin film technology.
As some of the researched thin film processes are generically applicable, the facilities are also open to research beyond the scope of photovoltaics.

Solliances’ research stretches across the entire field, from fundamentals of materials science to sophisticated production technologies that bring large scale production at low cost in reach. The close collaboration between ‘applied science’ researchers with academic staff and industrial teams has proven to be extremely effective.
For its three principal themes (Perovskite-based PV, Copper Indium Gallium Selenide (CIGS) module formation, and PV integration) it is equipped with a unique infrastructure for pilot production, customisation, analysis and characterization of thin film photovoltaic cells and thin film PV integrated building elements and systems. World class, beyond state of the art equipment (codeveloped with equipment manufacturers) is available on spatial Atomic Layer Deposition, slot die coating, electrochemical deposition, crystallisation and in-situ monitoring of thin film degradation processes under multiple stress factors. These generic facilities are also exploited for e.g. research on displays, batteries (ALD), and OLED. Additional investments are required for advanced contact layer- and barrier deposition, interconnection, customisation and analysis.
