The Energy Department's 2014 SunShot Grand Challenge Summit is in full swing -- bringing together government, industry, national laboratories and the policy community to tackle challenges in advancing solar energy. Read the opening day recap of the SunShot Summit.
The tremendous growth in the U.S. solar industry is helping to pave the way to a cleaner, more sustainable energy future. Over the past few years, the cost of a solar energy system has dropped significantly -- helping to give more American families and business access to affordable, clean energy.
Through a portfolio of R&D efforts, including the SunShot Initiative, the Energy Department remains committed to leveraging America’s abundant solar energy resources -- driving research, manufacturing and market solutions to support widespread expansion of the nation’s solar market.
