General comments:

The Ben-Gurion National Solar Energy Center is Israel’s solar energy “headquarters,” the only national solar energy center in the country.

It is located at BGU’s Sede Boqer campus where the unique climatic conditions have been empirically proven to be more accurate than computer simulation in testing solar energy systems.

Activities at the National Solar Energy Center include pursuing groundbreaking research to harness the potential of solar energy, assessing new equipment for solar power production, and educating the next generation of scientists and engineers.
