Significance for science
Reasearch and development in the field of photovoltaics as one of the most promising long-term Renewable Energy Source solutions for electricity supply has immense importance for sustainable evolution in energy sector in Europe and Slovenia. Photovoltaics rapidly grows into an economy sector that grows on average between 30 – 40 % per year. It increases quality and reliability of electricity supply, since it covers the peak demand and locally creates jobs. The very begining of Slovenian photovoltaic industry has been initiated and supported by our research group as the largest and internationally recognized PV R&D group in Slovenia. In the last five years the company BISOL d.o.o. started production of wafer-based crystalline silicon PV modules, Trimo d.d. released a new family of building elements with integrated flexible thin-film PV modules, SolarValue Proizvodnja d.o.o. intends to reconstruct ferosilicate furnaces into solar-grade silicon purification process, ETI Elektroelement d.d. started development of DC fuses, Kon Tiki Solar d.o.o., Genera d.d., Gryps d.o.o., Chemitrade d.o.o., … are focusing on engineering. They all plan new PV products, which will be strongly export oriented. Besides fundamental research, which generated numerous scientific publications in the top PV specialized international journals, we are more and more involved in applied research and development of new technologies and products in the field of photovoltaics and electronics. Increased cooperation with companies in Slovenia and abroad is evident. Our contribution to the development of science is reflected also in an increasing number of invited speeches at specialized international conferences and invited lectures at other universities and institutes around the globe.
Significance for the country
Energy situation will certainly strongly affect the future of economic development in Slovenia. Resorces of conventional energy sources become scarce, their harmful use accelerates climate change and environmental pollution. Energy sustainability of individial countries on macroeconomical level and of individual residential areas or houses on microeconomical level will importantly affect the socioeconomic system. The question of reliable, efficient and upmost sustainable and environmentally friendly energy supply will tailor the development and competitiveness also in Slovenia. Research program Semiconductor Electronics 2004-2008 was important for Slovenia from the following criteria: - introduction of ecologically natural energy sources, - contribution to new solutions in semiconductor structures in photovoltaics, - development of photovoltaic modules and other products, - affirmation of Slovenian research community in international arena, - cooperation of research group with foreign research and development groups around the globe, - cooperation with other research groups and exchange of experiences, equipment and personnel in interdisciplinary fields, - educating and training of highly skilled researchers in the field of applied sciences and technologies, - creation of economic sectors and new jobs in the 21st century, - deployment of ecology oriented strategy of Slovenia with the introduction of renewable energy sources for abatement of CO2 emissions. Among numerous achievements that speak for themselves. In recognition of our achievements, professor Marko Topic received the highest Scientific Award in the Republic of Slovenia, the Zois Award, in Nov 2008 for distinguished research and development achievements in the field of electronics, photovoltaics and optoelectronics.
