Text Riso carries out research on future generations of photovoltaic technologies (PV) and in particular polymer solar cells. In addition, we look into other means of utilizing sunlight; for instance to reduce carbon dioxide to synthetic fuels (solar fuels). Solar energy is a focus point in many strategies for a sustainable energy supply. The European Commissionís Strategic Energy Plan (SET-plan) envisages a Solar Europe Initiative, where photovoltaics and concentrated solar power (CSP) supply as much power as wind mills in the future.
