The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has announced a new funding opportunity under its ongoing SunShot Initiative.
The new opportunity, SolarMat, focuses on solar manufacturing technologies. ‘SolarMat intends to fund the development and demonstration of innovative, but commercially and technically viable, manufacturing technology that can achieve a significant market or manufacturing impact in one to four years,’ the DOE says.
Both PV and concentrating solar power technologies are eligible. Concept paper submissions are due March 22. The full solicitation is available here.
