Overview of the Photovoltaic Manufacturing Technology (PVMaT) Project

    Research output: NRELTechnical Report


    The Photovoltaic Manufacturing Technology (PVMaT) project is a historic government/industry photovoltaic (PV) manufacturing R&D partnership composed of joint efforts between the federal governinent (through the U.S. Department of Energy) and members of the U.S. PV industry. The project's ultimate goal is to ensure that the U.S. industry retains and extends its world leadership role in themanufacture and commercial development of PV components and systems. PVMaT is designed to do this by helping the U.S. PV industry improve manufacturing processes, accelerate manufacturing cost reductions for PV modules, improve commercial product performance, and lay the groundwork for a substantial scale-up of U.S.-based PV manufacturing plant capacities.
