Solar energy is the cleanest and most abundant renewable energy source available, and the U.S. has some of the richest solar resources in the world.
To support the progression of solar power, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced it would provide $128 million in funding to advance solar technologies. Through the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy’s Solar Energy Technologies Office, the DOE will fund innovative research projects that will lower solar electricity costs, while working to boost solar manufacturing, reduce red tape and make solar systems more resilient to cyberattacks. Among the 75 teams to receive an award is a team led by Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station researchers.
