DuraMAT FY 2023 Annual Report: Toward Reliability Forecasting

Research output: NRELBrochure


The Durable Module Materials Consortium (DuraMAT) launched in November 2016 with five years of funding from the U.S. Department of Energy s (DOE's) Solar Energy Technologies Office (SETO). The program renewed in 2022 for an additional 6 years. DuraMAT is a multi-lab consortium led by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, with Sandia National Laboratories (Sandia) and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) as core research labs. DuraMAT's overarching goal is to accelerate a sustainable, just, and equitable transition to zero-carbon electricity generation by 2035. 2023 has been a wild ride in the solar industry. Photovoltaic (PV) manufacturing is coming back to the United States, and deployment is booming again. DuraMAT has a unique opportunity to support flourishing manufacturing and deployment over the next couple of years.
