Dr. Christopher Hebling, Head of Department Energy Technology at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energie Systems ISE:

“Solar Summit 2010 will be a summit meeting on the future of renewable electromobility. With internationally leading researchers and developers as well as representatives of industry taking part, the congress aims to provide an general overview of developments in the field of renewable energy resources and their contribution to drive technology and future sustainable mobility. A major feature of Solar Summit will be the plenary round-table sessions at which presentations given by experts in the given areas will be discussed together with the participants in terms of the technical challenges involved and economic feasibility.”

Fraunhofer ISE is the scientific partner of Solar Summit 2010

This year again sees the assumption of the general technical management of Solar Summit by Prof. Eicke R. Weber, Director of Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE and Dr. Christopher Hebling, Head of Department Energy Technology at ISE.

With a workforce numbering 930, Fraunhofer ISE is Europe’s largest solar research institute. The institute’s focus with regard to electromobility is on network integration, i.e. the interface between the electricity grid and storage facilities, hydrogen production, fuel cell technology and the processing of biogenic energy resources.
