Silicon Solar Manufacturing and Dual Use PV Incubator
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Solar Energy Technologies Office (SETO) announced the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law Silicon Solar Manufacturing and Dual-use Photovoltaics Incubator funding opportunity, which will award $45 million for projects to enable continued solar cost reductions while developing next-generation solar technologies and boosting American solar manufacturing. SETO expects to make between five to 12 awards ranging from $1 million to $10 million under this funding opportunity announcement (FOA).
Advancing U.S. Thin Film Photovoltaics
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Solar Energy Technologies Office (SETO) has announced the Advancing U.S. Thin-Film Solar Photovoltaics funding opportunity, which will award $36 million for research, development, and demonstration projects on two major thin-film photovoltaic (PV) technologies. The projects resulting from this funding opportunity will support an equitable transition to a decarbonized electricity system by 2035 and facilitate secure, robust, and reliable integration of solar electricity into the nation’s energy grid.
This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is designed to help enable domestic manufacturing of affordable solar hardware, increase the portion of solar hardware value kept in the U.S. economy, and promote American leadership of thin-film PV technologies. The University of Arizona Center for Innovation (UACI) is providing support and resources to applicants such as educational workshops, mentorship and application support. Interested applicants are encouraged to download the entire Funding Opportunity Announcement.
