DOE funding would be used by National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) to support the Solar American Initiative (SAl) Photovoltaic (PV) Technology Incubator. The program is structured to allow innovative approaches targeted at research and development of PV cells and module prototypes. The primary objective of this SAl PV Technology Incubator project is to shorten the timeline for companies to transition prototype and pre-commercial PV technologies into pilot and full-scale manufacture. The specific objective of this work is the demonstration of the solar cell performance. The back surface passivation would be integrated into a process flow for solar cell production.
