The Department of Energy’s SunShot Initiative is a collaborative national program to make solar energy cost competitive with other forms of energy by the end of the decade. Reducing the installed cost of solar energy systems by about 75% will drive widespread, large-scale adoption of this renewable energy technology and restore U.S. leadership in the global clean energy race. This talk outlines the most promising options in emerging materials for photovoltaics.
