Event Details & Abstract: 

The Process Development and Integration Laboratory (PDIL) has one-of-a-kind capabilities for fabricating and studying a wide range of innovative solar cell technologies. This unique collaborative facility enables industry and university colleagues to work closely with NREL scientists on integrated equipment to answer pressing questions related to photovoltaics (PV) development. Small-startups have worked with NREL's resources and have made significant strides with the ability to overcome R&D hurdles rapidly and will be detailed. Overall, goal of NREL's PDIL program is to foster transformative innovation in the domestic PV industry that will dramatically reduce solar system costs to meet the DOE SunShot Initiative goals. This will be described in the presentation.
