SunShot Initiative Will See the Light of Day
April 7th, 2011

Three projects have been chosen by the Department of Energy as part of the SunShot Initiative to support the development of advanced solar photovoltaic related manufacturing processes throughout the U.S. The DOE has allocated $112.5 million over the course of five years to fund the three projects. The projects chosen are the Bay Area PV Consortium (Stanford, CA) with a budget of $25 million for university-focused development, SVTC Technologies (San Jose, CA) with a budget of $25 million for industry-focused development, and U.S. Photovoltaic Manufacturing Consortium (Albany, NY and Palm Bay, FL) with a budget of $62.5 million for industry-focused development.

By concentrating on areas such as research, manufacturing, and installation, the DOE hopes to bring the cost of expensive solar power down to a level where it can compete with other forms of energy production. The SunShot Initiative has set a goal of reducing the cost of solar power by 75 percent over the next decade. This goal would make large-scale solar energy systems cost competitive without subsidies. The program hopes to help expand America’s use of solar power and other forms of clean energy, thereby helping to establish U.S. leadership in the solar industry.
