Your tax dollars at work, folks: U.S. DOE funds projects to advance #solar tech

The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy has announced a total of $11 million for 16 projects intended to develop innovative, early-stage solutions in both photovoltaics (PV) and concentrating solar power (CSP). According to the DOE, 10 of the awardees are small-scale research and development (R&D) projects designed to push the limits of PV technologies, potentially advancing the new cell and module architectures, efficiency, energy output, service lifetime, and manufacturability. These awardees will be funded under the Small Innovative Projects in Solar (SIPS) program developed to support progress toward leveling the cost of solar electricity to approximately $0.02/kWh to $0.03/kWh by 2030. The small, early-stage PV projects will receive nearly $2 million to demonstrate the potential for expanded work in novel or emerging area...
