The Centre for Solar Energy Research (CSER)

CSER is a Centre of Expertise of Glyndŵr University based at OpTIC in the city of St. Asaph. CSER is part of the Low Carbon Research Institute (LCRI) which collaborates on renewable energy R & D across Wales and has proven expertise and a world class reputation in researching novel photovoltaic materials and devices. CSER focuses its research towards commercial applications. Several of CSER’s grant funded projects involve collaborative work with industrial and academic partners. Through these interactions CSER has gained a world-class reputation in Solar Photovoltaics (PV) and technology transfer. Previous CSER projects have resulted in new products, processes or services being developed which provided new business for industry, improved quality control procedures and improved production yields.



The Centre aims:

  • To continue to develop technologies and materials that will, at the end of the PV supply chain, improve the efficiency of PV and therefore increase electricity generation from renewable sources
  • To assist businesses working on any aspect of the renewable energy supply chain, including collaborative research and development, and by offering analytical services and training.
  • Accelerating progress in solar energy technology through linking fundamental research to industrial application

The Centre provides:

1. State-of-the-art material and PV preparation facilities

2. Characterisation and inspection equipment

3. Consultancy and project collaboration expertise

4. A network of business and academic contacts and expertise
