With this cooperation, Kalyon PV will be supporting the zero carbon policy of the future.
A cooperation agreement for the development of the solar energy industry was signed between Kalyon Enerji and Germany-based Fraunhofer Institute of Solar Energies (ISE). The collaboration between Fraunhofer ISE, one of Europe's largest applied sciences research and development organizations, and Kalyon PV; it covers research, business development and information exchange between institutions on agriculture, building-highway integrated solar panel systems production and energy storage. While Kalyon Enerji allocates a budget of US$ 9 million for the next 3 years to jointly developed projects; in its research in the field of solar energy, the Institute will only work with Kalyon PV in Türkiye. With this partnership, Kalyon PV aims to greatly contribute to the zero carbon policy of the future.
At the Turkish-German Energy Forum held in Berlin under the leadership of the Minister of Energy and Natural Resources Fatih Dönmez and German Minister of Economy and Climate Protection Robert Habeck, the signing ceremony for the cooperation was held with the participation of Kalyon Enerji Chairman Haluk Kalyoncu and Fraunhofer ISE Director Prof. Hans Martin Henning.
Speaking at the signing ceremony, Prof. Henning said, “The solar industry, and especially photovoltaic (PV) module production, is already well positioned in Türkiye. We look forward to developing innovative PV technologies with Kalyon Enerji.”
Founded in 1949, the Fraunhofer Institute operates 76 institutes and research facilities in Germany. The organization, which has more than 30,000 employees, boasts 1,400 solar researchers.
KalyOperating under Kalyon Holding, Kalyon Enerji carries out R&D and innovation studies to make clean and renewable energy sources accessible to meet all energy needs. Kalyon Enerji's investments focus on hydroelectric, solar and wind energy.
