GUNAM as an Excellence Center

             The Center for Solar Energy Research and Applications (GÜNAM) is an interdisciplinary center of excellence in the area of solar energy science and technology. It has recently received significant support through State Planning Organization (SPO) and Ministry of Industry and Commerce of Turkey. GÜNAM considers itself as the major national center in the development of solar cell technologies including photovoltaic and solar thermal system for energy production and aims to serve all interested institutions and individuals in Turkey.


Primary aims of GÜNAM are:

  • Improve solar energy technologies that convert solar energy to electrical energy at an affordable price;

  • Create a technological infrastructure for national industry and eliminate the possible negative effects of the incentive systems;

  • Become an institution that creates and guides synergy of innovation at national and international level;

  • Increase public awareness and consciousness on the usage of solar energy;

  • Train and educate professionals for solar energy research and industry.
