Australian Centre for Advanced Photovoltaics
Professor Martin Green explains the Role of the Australian Centre for Advanced Photovoltaics: its constituents and target outcomes.
The Australian Centre for Advanced Photovoltaics (ACAP) comprises the Australian partners of the Australia-US Institute for Advanced Photovoltaics (AUSIAPV), which will develop the next generations of photovoltaic technology, providing a pipeline of opportunities for performance increase and cost reduction. AUSIAPV will link ACAP with NSF/DOE Energy Research Center for Quantum Energy and Sustainable Technologies (QESST), based at Arizona State University, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, Sandia National Laboratories, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratories, Stanford University, Georgia Institute of Technology and University of California - Santa Barbara.
These national and international research collaborations will provide a pathway for highly visible, structured photovoltaic research collaboration between Australian and American researchers, research institutes and agencies, with significant joint programs based on the clear synergies between participating bodies.
The Centre will significantly accelerate photovoltaic development beyond that achievable by institutes acting individually, leveraging past and current funding.
This Program has been supported by the Australian Government through the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA). The Australian Government, through ARENA, is supporting Australian research and development in solar photovoltaic and solar thermal technologies to help solar power become cost competitive with other energy sources. The views expressed herein are not necessarily the views of the Australian Government, and the Australian Government does not accept responsibility for any information or advice contained herein.
ACAP encourages collaboration with new and existing partners. If interested, please contact one of the node directors in your technical area.
