The initiative marries SRC’s pre-competitive research model together with university research in solar PV, with two major thrusts: PV manufacturing and SmartGrid technology. Member companies not only have access to university research, but to a trained workforce of graduate students. Activities include developing simulation tools, developing the foundation for a roadmap, and a process for implementing a research roadmap.
