$1/W Workshop

ARPA-E and the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy’s (EERE) Solar Energy Technology Program (SETP) held a photovoltaics workshop on August 10-11, 2010 at the JW Marriott Hotel in Washington, DC. While DOE has a highly-productive photovoltaic (PV) program, we may need a dramatic change to develop products that can compete in large markets without significant subsidies. Experts specifically discussed how to achieve PV facilities priced at $1 per watt, fully-installed.
