The EnergyVille 2 laboratory has a total area of 20Lab Facilities00 m², and houses the infrastructure for the TFPV, Battery and Si-PV Modules laboratories. To accommodate these different activities, 1500 m² of the lab has been equipped with all facilities required by the different tools used by the research groups active in the laboratory, while another 500 m2 is available for future expansion. Available facilities include bulk gasses N2, H2, O2, Ar and forming gas, compressed air, cooling water and DI water. An industrial waste water treatment system and both solvent and acid waste collection are available, as well as exhaust channels both for inorganic and organic vapours. Specialty gasses and chemicals, tailored to the needs of the tools and customers, are delivered directly to the laboratory. The full laboratory is an ISO8 cleanroom facility, with temperature and relative humidity control.
