Start Date: 
Tuesday, 1 January 2008 to Saturday, 31 December 2011
Spanish research in the field of photovoltaic concentration systems.

Creation of an innovative model for transferring concepts and knowledge about several technologies related to the optical field. 

In order to get cheaper renewable energy, optimize the more efficient solar systems and improve the production mechanisms; it is essential to promote the exchange of knowledge between research centers and companies that work in the solar field. The project Sigmasoles looks for the creation of a technologic transfer model where all the members will collaborate in the development of a technologic and industrial knowledge base. The purpose is to find solutions in order to improve the quality, reduce the production costs and increase the productivity in the field of renewable energy.  Therefore the main aim of the project is to support the photovoltaic concentration industrial sector through R&D, innovation and technologic knowledge transfer.
