Advanced solar technologies

A lot still needs to be done to make the most of the sun as a resource. Solar panel efficiency must continue to increase. And production and purchase costs must be reduced. To achieve this, we work with manufacturers on materials, technologies, and innovations. Examples are silicon PV, thin-film perovskite, and tandems.
