This project will support National Center for Photovoltaics (NCPV) educational and outreach activities, including Hands-On PV Experience (HOPE) for students.


HOPE provides students an opportunity to watch photovoltaic (PV) materials and devices be fabricated and characterized. Students benefit from direct participation in collecting and analyzing PV-related data as well as discussing PV-related topics.


This project will enhance the educational experiences of those obtaining PhDs at leading universities within the United States and strengthen ties between NREL and the rest of the PV community in order to increase the value of DOE-funded projects occurring at a range of institutions.
