Since 1989 AstroPower has been involved in the solar power and advanced optoelectronic products business. AstroPower started out in 1983 as a division of Astrosystems Inc., an outgrowth of semiconductor work initiated at the University of Delaware. They produce a complete line of photovoltaic solar cells, solar modules and complete systems packages for residential, commercial and industrial applications as well as turnkey power plant solutions for utilities in the newly deregulated energy market. AstroPower also produces a variety of advanced products for industrial and consumer applications.

The Institute of Energy Conversion at the University of Delaware is a multi-disciplinary laboratory devoted to research and development of thin-film photovoltaic cells. The Institute was founded in 1972 and was designated a University Centre of Excellence for Photovoltaic Research and Education in 1992, an award presented by the US Department of Energy. Their research program is complemented by an educational mission that enables both undergraduate and graduate students to obtain degrees, while working with professionals engaged in solar cell research. The Institute of Energy Conversion is the only University Centre of Excellence supported by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory.

Energy Systems Technology (EST) was introduced as an individual subject at Chalmers University of Technology, Göteborg, Sweden, in 1981. EST is defined as the study of the technical aspects of energy systems, taking into consideration all relevant factors involved in energy supply, distribution and demand. Fieldwork has been extended to include waste management systems, and the technical and economic optimisation of complete systems plays an important role in the syllabus.
This is a very informative site and is well worth a visit.
