The solar photovoltaic (PV) industry continues to grow, despite intense international competition and recent margin compression. Can innovation in technology and manufacturing allow American companies to compete and ultimately thrive in this huge but challenging market?
Professor Buonassisi will address these questions as he explores the outlook for American PV cell and module suppliers.? He will begin by using an industry-validated bottoms-up cost model to compare the cost-reduction potentials of various innovative PV technologies, and how their successful development could influence manufacturing location decisions.? He will also describe recent progress toward these innovative technologies, highlighting the new computational and experimental tools that have accelerated the cycle of discovery and product development â?? providing â??sneak peeks??? at the technologies that may grace rooftops in years to come.? ? He will conclude by showcasing recent success stories of U.S. innovation.
