Clean Cities hosts a collection of tools on the exploring concepts for a “PV Manufacturing Initiative” to facilitate the development of a strong photovoltaic (PV) manufacturing industry in the United States. As an integral part this effort, and to inform the creation of a new funding opportunity in this area, DOE sought feedback from the PV industry.
This document summarizes the results of the PV Manufacturing Request for Information (RFI), DE-FOA-0000153. (See Attachment 1.) The RFI was posted on http://www.grants.gov on 4 September 2009 and the NREL Web site on 9 September 2009. Respondents were asked to submit RFI inputs to PVManufInit@go.doe.gov by 30 September 2009. A total of 58 responses were received. The 58 responses consisted of 30 Industry, 11 University, 11 Consortia, 2 National Lab, and 5 noncompliant inputs.1 The responding organizations and their contact information are provided in Attachment 2.
This document summarizes the inputs as a set of common themes from the responses. The specific answers, recommendations, and suggested approaches from each respondent were also captured and individually summarized, but are not included in this document because they are identified with specific respondents.
