SolMaT--The Solar Thermal Manufacturing Technology Initiative

    Research output: NRELFact Sheet


    Together with industry, the U.S. Department of Energy is working to ensure the cost-effective design and manufacturing of solar thermal electric (STE) components in an environment of uncertain future sales and modest initial production volumes. As this fact sheet explains, the SolMaT initiative will advance STE technologies by identifying manufacturing barriers to early commercial sales,conducting prototype studies to develop and optimize the key processes needed for low-volume manufacturing of solar components, developing and demonstrating special manufacturing processes and tooling, and scaling up existing prototype-level manufacturing approaches by exploiting significant deployment opportunities.
