Pioneering rather than following in photovoltaic solar energy technologies...
The aim of the Kalyon PV R&D Department, consisting of a research team of over 100 people, is to carry out research and development activities on photovoltaic solar energy and to produce new technologies with the knowledge and experience of its team of experts.
An R&D team of 100+ members
Indoor space of 2.500 m²
Outdoor platform of 5000 m² for Test Center
Representation in National and International Scientific Conferences/Congresses
Patent and Utility Model Application
The R&D Center, consisting of offices and clean room laboratories located on an indoor space of 2,500 m² in Kalyon PV, also has a 5,000 m² of outdoor testing platform.
In the Center, currently research activities such as N-type crystalline silicon growth and cell development in particular, and studies on high efficiency solar cell and module, field performance and energy generation enhancement, energy storing battery systems, smart factory, self-learning systems and automation continue to be carried out. In addition, R&D studies on advanced characterization techniques, innovative and niche technologies are also performed at the Center.
By establishing R&D partnerships with the leading institutions and organizations in Türkiye and in the world, with Hasan Kalyoncu University in particular, establishment of a structure that develops the domestic sub-industry and raw material supply chain as well as producing its own technology has been aimed.
Primary activities of the R&D Center:
- Prototype studies for semi-conductor ingot and wafer production, which constitutes the basis of chip technology,
- TOPCon panel technology and Gallium doped panels,
- Perovskite and multilayer cell technologies,
- Development of wafer slicing techniques,
- N-Type monocrystalline ingot, wafer production,
- Flexible Panel studies for applicability on curved floors,
- ESS studies, which are listed as Energy Storage Systems in the literature, that store solar energy and provides integration thereof into different systems,
- Agrivoltaic SPP works that allow electricity generation in agricultural lands,
- More than 50 representations at national and international scientific conferences/congresses,
- More than 20 patent and utility model applications by the R&D Center (This number continues to increase.)
