Ensuring U.S. Leadership in Manufacturing of Next-Generation Photovoltaics and Optoelectronics
The U.S. Manufacturing of Advanced Perovskites (US-MAP) Consortium accelerates domestic
commercialization of perovskite technologies by providing access to comprehensive
research capabilities that establish a solid technical foundation.
The consortium was formed by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, University
of Toledo's Wright Center for Photovoltaics, Washington Clean Energy Testbeds (University
of Washington), and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill working together
with leading domestic companies pursuing perovskite technologies.
The mission of the US-MAP Consortium is to:
- Ensure U.S. leadership in innovation for manufacturing of photovoltaics, quantum and
neuromorphic computing, medical imaging, and display applications
- Ensure the success of domestic companies
- Assemble shared resources and expertise to enable effective, efficient investment
in U.S. manufacturing
- Provide foundational science in precompetitive areas to accelerate market entry of
next-generation energy products based on perovskite semiconductors.
