The MACLAB-PV – improvement of R&D&i technologies and capacity building in the sector of renewable energy and energy efficiency of the Canary Islands and Senegal - co-financed by the INTERREG Madeira-Azores-Canarias Territorial Cooperation Programme (MAC) 2014-2020. The project aims to optimize the scientific, technological, demonstrative and innovative infrastructures and capacities existing in the participating regions, pursuing excellence in research and innovation in the sector of renewable energies and energy efficiency. This project will foster the creation of a more specialized scientific community that can respond effectively to the real needs of the sector within the cooperation area, improving their international competence and providing a greater implementation of renewable energies. This virtual tour has been developed by The Institute of Technology and Renewable Energy (ITER) in collaboration with the Tenerife Energy Agency (AIET) and the Center of Studies and Research on Renewable Energy (CERER) of Senegal as part of the actions of advice and transfer of scientific-technical results aimed at both public authorities and the general population provided within the framework of the MACLAB-PV project The Solar Photovoltaic Components Quality Control Laboratory (LCQS) is the infrastructure on which Senegal's strategy for quality control of photovoltaic equipment components is based. In recent years, Senegal has been developing a policy of massive use of photovoltaic solar energy in various sectors of economic and social activity. Various public and private actors participate in projects aimed at providing electricity to populations through the use of photovoltaic solar energy for various applications. The Solar Photovoltaic Components Quality Control Laboratory (LCQS), financed by the German Cooperation (GTZ) and installed in CERER, is an infrastructure supervised by the Ministry of Oil and Energy. By virtue of its role within the National Standards Management Unit, CERER guarantees the daily management of the Laboratory, whose main mission is to guarantee the control of the photovoltaic components used throughout the national territory.
