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.

US-MAP Mission

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.
