The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) extended the deadline to share feedback on key research priorities for photovoltaic (PV) technology. The deadline to submit to the Photovoltaics Innovation Roadmap Request for Information (RFI) is now August 14.
The PV Innovation Roadmap RFI aims to gather insights from solar stakeholders in order to move toward the SunShot 2030 goal of $0.03 per kilowatt hour. Scientific and technological innovation that increases cell efficiency, improves long-term system reliability and durability, and maximizes annual energy production, while concurrently reducing supply chain and manufacturing costs, is critical to reducing the cost of solar electricity and supporting solar adoption.
The RFI hopes to gather information in four categories:
- Technological research priorities;
- Characterization and modeling techniques;
- Module packaging and reliability; and
- Portfolio evaluation.
The deadline to submit responses is 5:00pm EDT on August 14. View the full list of questions in the request along with instructions for submitting responses.
