Tremendous decline in costs for solar power generation enables new applications in the transport sector. Electric vehicles with integrated PV modules achieve longer ranges, vehicles with combustion engines save fuel and reduce their emissions, and transport routes can also be operated as power stations.

Compared to conventional PV installations, modules on vehicles and traffic routes are exposed to very demanding loads. At Fraunhofer ISE, we develop solar modules that meet these extreme requirements.

We offer a comprehensive range of services for PV applications in the mobility sector, including yield assessment and analysis of PV systems, the development of solar modules or electronic applications, as well as economic considerations.
