Biden-Harris Administration Invests $20 Million to Optimize Lifecycle of Solar Energy Systems and Minimize Technology Waste

Funding from President Biden’s Investing in America Agenda Will Improve Photovoltaic System Lifecycle Performance, Streamline the Reuse and Recyclability of Solar Technologies, and Boost Domestic Supply Chain

 As part of Bidenomics and President Biden’s Investing in America agenda, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) today announced $20 million, including $8 million from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, to minimize the use of solar energy system materials, improve installation quality and resilience of photovoltaic (PV) systems, and streamline the reuse and recyclability of solar panels. This funding opportunity will also set up a Solar Partnership to Advance Recycling and Circularity to improve materials recovery and develop safe end-of-life practices for PV system components. The projects funded by this program will work to develop holistic solutions to enable rapid solar energy deployment in the United States over the next decade, creating jobs in communities across the country that support the Biden-Harris Administration’s ambitious climate goals. 

The Materials, Operation, and Recycling of Photovoltaics (MORE PV) funding opportunity is designed to sustain and accelerate the growth of America’s PV industry. The funding opportunity asks teams to identify ways to optimize PV systems throughout their lifecycle to lower costs, facilitating rapid deployment of solar energy. Teams from institutions of higher education, for-profit entities, non-profit entities, state and local government, and tribal entities are encouraged to apply.
