The SunShot Initiative is a collaborative national effort to make solar energy cost competitive with other forms of energy by the end of the decade.  As part of the initiative, the Department announced seven data-driven projects that will bring to light new opportunities to lower costs and advance solar energy deployment in the U.S.A.  Former Energy Secretary Steven Chu said, “Through powerful analytical tools developed by our nation’s top universities and national labs, we can gain unparalleled insight into solar deployment that will help lower the cost of solar power and create new businesses and jobs.”

The Energy Department is investing funds in these projects to assist with these new discoveries to improve solar cell efficiency and reduce costs.
