What are the authoritative laboratories for solar energy in the world?
The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) is the primary American laboratory for renewable energy and energy efficiency research and development (R&D). ,NREL established the Solar Energy Research Institute since 1977, which publishes the best research-cell efficiency records obtained worldwide twice a year. NREL plays an important role in the world's PV measurement field.

In addition, the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems (ISE) in Germany is also dedicated to the development of the PV industry. The institute has remarkable results on R&D of solar cells and also plays an equivalent role as with NREL in the PV measurement field.
Enlitech’s solar cell measurement equipments possess the same quality with NREL and Fraunhofer ISE. We help customers achieve the same measurement standard with NREL and Fraunhofer ISE.
