DOE Gives $40 Million to Grid-Decarbonizing Solar Technologies

The funding will support 40 projects increasing lifespan and reliability of solar PV and speed up the use of solar power and storage.

According to Clean Technica, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) today awarded nearly $40 million to 40 projects that are advancing the next generation of solar, storage, and industrial technologies necessary for achieving the Biden–Harris administration’s climate goal of 100% clean electricity by 2035. Specifically, the projects will reduce the cost of solar technologies by increasing the lifespan of photovoltaic (PV) systems from 30 to 50 years, developing technologies that will enable solar to be used in fuel and chemicals production, and advancing novel storage technologies.
