SunShot Initiative Details Topic Areas

 
Sunshot-Initiative-Details

The SunShot Initiative will be obtaining approximately $170 million in funding over three years to support photovoltaic technologies, and the four key topic areas of the project have been revealed.

  • Foundational Program to Advance Cell Efficiency (F-PACE)Funding collaboration with the National Science Foundation; provides up to $39 million for R&D related to solar device physics, improved PV cell performance, and reduced module costs for commercial applications.
  • Extreme Balance of System Hardware Cost Reductions (BOS-X): Funding up to $60 million for research, development, and demonstration of BOS components. Includes hardware-related projects as well as work in codes and standards to accommodate innovative, low-cost hardware designs.
  • Solar Energy Grid Integration Systems—Advanced Concepts: Provides $40 million in funding to develop technologies designed to increase the integration of solar energy onto the electrical grid and facilitate interactions between solar energy systems and Smart Grid technologies. Funding will also support high-voltage systems that reduce installed costs associated with BOS costs for utility-scale installations and projects focused on technologies like micro-inverters capable of harvesting higher amounts of energy.
  • PV Next Generation: Provides $30 million in funding for early-stage applied laboratory-scale research to demonstrate and prove new concepts in materials, processes, and device designs for solar PV component development.

SunShot is a DOE-wide initiative that leverages investments from the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE), the Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy, and the Office of Science.
