$40 million Fiscal Year 2021 Photovoltaics and Concentrating Solar-Thermal Power
Join the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Solar Energy Technologies Office (SETO) for two informational webinars on the new $40 million Fiscal Year 2021 Photovoltaics and Concentrating Solar-Thermal Power (SETO FY21 PV and CSP) funding opportunity and the $3 million Perovskite Startup Prize.
The SETO FY21 PV and CSP webinar will be held Monday, April 12, at 2 p.m. ET. DOE seeks to fund up to 55 research and development projects that will advance PV and CSP. DOE staff will discuss the types of projects we’re looking to fund in the following topic areas:
50-Year Service Life PV Systems
SOLAR R&R: Scalable Outputs for Leveraging Advanced Research on Receivers & Reactors
Pumped Thermal Energy Storage
CSP Process Enhancement and Refinement for Operations, Reliability, and Maintenance (CSP: PERFORM)
Research in Equipment For Optimized and Reliable Machinery (CSP: REFORM)
Small Innovative Projects in Solar (SIPS): PV and CSP
Mandatory letters of intent for this funding opportunity are due April 26, 2021, at 5 p.m. ET. Learn more about the topic areas and register today.
On Tuesday, April 13, at 1 p.m. ET, DOE will host the Perovskite Startup Prize webinar to review how this competition will help move world-class perovskite research out of the lab into newly formed U.S. companies and accelerate the development and manufacturing of perovskite solar cells.
