The history of ITER is inextricably linked to sustainable development and innovation.
The Centre of Excellence in Development & Innovation (CEDeI) is launched, with plans to develop a training programme aimed at promoting employment in the technology sector. It aims to train 160 people and directly contract [...]
ITER connects Tenerife’s undersea fibre-optic cable with the Africa Coast to Europe (ACE) undersea cable system, making Tenerife a strategic node of international connectivity, and turning ITER’s D-ALiX into a world-class centre of reference in [...]
The launch of the Photovoltaic Cells Laboratory (SiCellLab), a dedicated scientific and technological facility specialising in silicon thin-film cell fabrication and characterisation processes.
Connecting the Canalink undersea fibre-optic cable at ITER’s D-ALiX datacentre, which provides an alternative telecommunications link between the Canary Islands and the Iberian Peninsula and among the islands.
During 2006-2012, we acted as technical advisors to the European Commission on renewable energy and the environment for the EURO-SOLAR programme, which aims to install 600 system kits for providing 100% renewable energy across eight [...]
The 11MW Solten II photovoltaic system starts up, operated by the firm Solten II Granadilla, SA. This is owned by private investors and ITER, which is responsible for promoting, installing, operating and maintaining the system.
The launch of the first masters degree course in Renewable Energy at the University of La Laguna, in which ITER acted as sponsor and provided training facilities.
We launched SOLTEN I, a 13 MW photovoltaic platform consisting of 130 100kW photovoltaic units sold to small investors. ITER acted as developer, installer, operator and maintainer of the system.
We opened an Environment Division focused primarily on volcanic hazards, underground water resources, environmental quality, earthquake monitoring and prediction, and geothermal exploration.
We celebrated the international competition "25 Bioclimatic Homes for the island of Tenerife". 397 projects from 38 countries were presented at the competition, which was endorsed by the International Union of Architects.
