Role of Universities in the DOE National Photovoltaics Program

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Through subcontracts, universities participate in near-term, mid-term, and long-term technology development in the National Photovoltaics Program of the U.S. Department of Energy. As noted in the DOE Program Plan for 1996-2000, universities' expertise in fundamental science and in materials and device research adds immeasurably to the foundations of science, advancement of technology, andeffectiveness of the National Program. However, recent budget cuts have affected university subcontract funding, principally for long-term technology development. Historically, universities funded by DOE concentrated on long-term research, specifically in two subcontract programs entitled 'University Participation' and 'New Ideas.' DOE intends to restart these highly successful programs.
