The Photovoltaic (PV) Technology Incubator project facilitates a company's transition from developing a PV module or cell prototype to pilot and full-scale manufacturing. The PV Technology Incubator project receives funds from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), through the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). The PV Incubator project targets small businesses that have demonstrated a proof-of-concept/process in a lab, but still need to overcome significant barriers before they can achieve commercialization. After 18 months of funding, a successful project is expected to have a commercially viable product and be capable of approximately 2-3 MW/ year pilot production. It is anticipated that these companies will begin entry into the market by 2011.
