Breu explicació del projecte / Brief explanation of your project
Photovoltaics (PV) are crucial in fighting climate change and transitioning to green energy sources. Third-generation photovoltaic technology aims to achieve high-efficiency devices and improved adaptability for different applications in different sectors. However, the precise and complicated production process results in huge amounts of waste due to defects. In this context, the EU-funded Platform-ZERO project is developing a new industrial process-monitoring platform for third-generation PV using AI to revolutionise the production process and impactfully reduce defects and costs. To achieve its goals, the project will develop novel sensors and methods for in-line industrial inspection that will improve the quality of third-generation PV and reduce its environmental impact by minimising the waste of energy and valuable materials during production.
