About InterSolarCenterЭта страница на русском здесь
Solar Energy Center INTERSOLARCENTER is Russian Regional Center for Renewable Energy Application.
Brief information about organization
Non-commercial organization INTERSOLARCENTER was established in 1994 with support of Ministry of Science and Technologies (now Ministry of Industry and Technologies), Ministry of Energy of Russian Federation (RF), and Russian Academy of Agricultural Sciences (RAAS). Initiative of creation of the ISC was also supported by UNESCO office in Paris.
Main objective is integration of intellectual and financial resources in Russia for solving of problems of renewable energy (RE) application, establishing contacts with international organizations for development and realization of RE projects (European Commission, US Department of Energy, members of OPET Network and others). To achieve these objectives, Intersolarcenter relies on groups of scientist, design bureaus and industrial firms that work in the field of renewable energy.
- Providing information and training on renewable energy sources
- Providing information and consultancy on renewable energies for the political decision-makers on a local, regional, national and international level
- Publishing information material (brochures, didactic material, manuals, etc.) on renewable energy
- Encouraging studies on the economics, techniques and feasibility in the field of renewable energy
- Cooperation with international renewable energy organisations
- Elaborating and implementing RE projects in Russia
- Organizing national and international RE conferences etc.
Intersolarcenter also has close contacts in Ministry of Industry and Energy (Deparment of Fuel and Energy).
Management of Intersolarcenter
- President - V. Dobrokhotov, prof.
- General Director - A. Pinov, Dr.
- Vice-President - D. Strebkov, academician of Russian Academy of Agricultural Science, prof., Director of All-Russian Institute of Electrification of Agriculture
In 2000-2002 "Intersolarcenter" has been Associated Member of Organization for Promotion of New Energy Technologies (OPET). The OPET network was created by European Comission. Projects and activity implemented by "Intersolarcenter" within OPET framework, are described in OPET section of this site.
In 2002-2006 "Intersolarcenter" participated in a project on creation and development of EU-Russia Energy Technology Centre. Intersolarcenter is main Russian partner for implementation of TC's projects on renewable energy and energy efficiency. More information you can find in TC section of this site.
Since 1997 Intersolarcenter together with GNIIHTEOS (Moscow) and US National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) is elaborating new ecologically clean chlorine free technology for solar grade polysilicon feedstock production. Curently Intersolarcenter is organizing works on construction of pilot line for the polysilicon feedstock production at GNIIHTEOS facilities.
Another joint project with NREL was "Elecrification of Northern Russian territories", implemented in 1997-2001. Within this project the assessment of wind energy resources in Murmansk and Archangelsk regions of Russia was done. Project on electrification of rural northern settlements was elaborated. US side delivered 40 small wind energy systems for installation in these selected settlements.
More information about these projects you can find in Projects part of this web-site.
"Intersolarcenter" is also coordinating body for Assosiation of Russian manufacturers of photovoltaic cells and systems, and also is international representative of company "Solar Wind" (Krasnodar) which is developer of technology for manufacturing of high-efficiency polysilicon PV cellsand biggest manufacturer of PV cells, modules and systems in Russia.
With participation of "Intersolarcenter's" specialists a company for design, selling and installation of autonomous energy supply systems with use of renewable energy technologies was created. This compnay - "Your Solar Home" is new, but very professional designer and installer of renewable energy systems. More information is available at the company's web-site www.solarhome.ru
