Our systems consist of high quality, state of the art components, which are based on Dr. Buecher's 37 years of experience in designing photovoltaic measurement equipment.
Our systems are in use by various testing and calibration laboratories which are certified to ISO 17025.
In order to recognise exceptional contributions to the standardisation of Photovoltaic Measurements, Dr. Buecher, the managing director and lead developer of Optosolar, has been awarded the IEC 1906 award from the International Electrotechnical Commission(see DKE Verleihung IEC 1906 Award, IEC 1906 award recipients 2011 and IEC 1906 award criteria, )
Prior to founding Optosolar, Dr. Buecher has been the head of the photovoltaic calibration laboratory at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems (Fraunhofer ISE) in Freiburg, Germany, for many years.
