THE CENTER FOR A SOLAR POWERED FUTURE
Our goal is to enable the United States and the world to achieve a zero carbon footprint by 2050 with the use of solar energy as a resource.
We are a Phase III Industry/University Cooperative Research Center operating since 2010, previously under the name the Center for Next Generation Photovoltaics. With funding from the National Science Foundation and industry partners, our Center has supported over 200 students, published over 125 papers and developed several technologies that are now used by the solar power industry. Our researchers are committed to helping reach a carbon neutral future.
