The Helmholtz Center Berlin (HZB) and the Max-Planck Society (MPG) strengthen their research in renewable energies with the implementation of the joint Energy Material in-Situ Lab Berlin (EMIL) at the third generation light source BESSY II. The new facility is dedicated to the in-situ and in-system X-ray analysis of materials and devices for photovoltaic applications, (photo-) catalytic processes, energie conversion and storage. To obtain a comprehensive understanding of the involved materials, spectroscopic methods with X-rays from the soft- up to the hard X-ray regime reveal an almost complete picture of their chemical and electronic properties. The contribution presents the layout of the X-ray beamlines and their performance in terms of photon flux, energy resolution and spot sizes.
