About NERC

Mr. Samuli Ranta

M.Sc., Senior lecturer, Research Leader Photovoltaic and Control Systems

Our research group is multidisciplinary and international and active in both, research and teaching. In our team competencies in photovoltaics, wind energy, electrochemical energy storage, power electronics, energy measurement, sustainable mobility and data management come together.  Our members’ different backgrounds are the best ground for creativity and innovation, while many years of experience help us to be agile, reliable and accurate. The wide spectrum of knowledge is a disposal of our students and we also regularly have students working on our projects as assistants, providing them with valuable experience.
