SOL-ION

The project objective is to develop a new concept of energy transformation and an energy storage system for decentralized and networked photovoltaic systems, for housing and buildings. This project will introduce lithium-ion batteries in PV systems on the largest scale ever experienced in Europe. The lithium-ion technology is essential to respond to a life of 20 years in harsh environmental conditions.
