The second renewable energy research laboratory in Europe was recently completed in Timisoara, western Romania, after an EUR 8 million investment, reports local Digi24.
The researchers here are looking for the best way to use the solar energy, which they say it will ensure the world’s future energy. They have more than 20 next-generation devices at their disposal, brought in from the Netherlands, America, Israel, Germany, Italy, and the UK.
The lab also has a microscope unique in Eastern Europe, which allows image capture at an atomic level. Only Poland has a laboratory with the same performance.
The laboratory in Romania belongs to the National Research Institute for Electrochemistry and Condensed Matter. The building that hosts the laboratory is energy efficient, as it produces its own electricity through solar panels on the roof.
