This project implemented Solare Zukunft e.V. aimed at creating local business that produces small PV modules out of broken PV cells. The product were supposed to be systems that provide energy for small electrical devices, for lighting of about 4-6 hours per day or to charge several low voltage devices, such as cell phones, cameras, radios etc. Focus of the project was know-how transfer by involving the employees from the very beginning, including the participation in the setup up of the production unit itself. Further steps planned were training in the production of the PV modules out of the broken parts imported from abroad. In parallel to the initial setup marketing activities to promote the products were planned.
