About us – SPF Institute for Solar Technology

Our goal is a sustainable energy supply in a livable environment and we are convinced, this can be achieved through the usage of renewable energy and in particular through solar power.

Renewable energy allows industrialized nations to reduce their CO₂-Emissions as well as their dependency on fossil fuel. Especially,  solar energy is a reliable source of heat and electricity in rural areas and also enables a cost effective and reliable energy supply for everyone in an economical, ecological and social way.

The SPF is a driving force in research and development of innovative components, systems and processes. Our general focus is energy efficiency and renewable energy technology, and a particular focus in solar thermal and solar electrical energy. We are a motivated and qualified team working on innovative projects and support the industry in the development and testing of new products.

We are looking forward to tackle the upcoming energy challenge together with you and your idea.
