Members Reviews

The opportunity to get your questions answered was very good. Don Rosato has a good and broad technical knowledge on photovoltaic technology and applications.

Sander N. , from Underwriters Laboratories

This was an excellent course on PV technology because it gave us new ideas and oriented us in new research areas.

Alberto R. , from CID

It was very useful for the understanding of the new trends of technology in the PV field and constraints materials have to fulfill to be used in these applications.

Paola G. , from Camattini

Very good! The training showed a lot of details about materials used and under research. Good to know for a material supplier.

Wouter V. , from DSM

I am starting my study about the market, so it was a very good and complete first overview.

Rodrigo G. , from Braskem

Very Good! I'm working on projects in photovoltaic application and I got info about new materials
