On July 29, 2015, the SunShot Initiative held a workshop on silicon photovoltaics research directions beyond 2020 in conjunction with the NREL workshop on crystalline silicon solar cells and modules. The purpose of this workshop was to discuss and survey the impactful research directions for silicon based photovoltiacs beyond the 2020 goal. Participants separated into breakout groups by the following research areas: Metrology and Characterization, Cell Processing and Metallization, Heterojunctions, Silicon Supply, and Modules and Reliability.
