We work with solar panel manufacturers to help them gain a competitive advantage, from improving solar panel performance using new manufacturing processes, to discovering innovative materials that can replace toxic chemicals. Our goal is to strengthen and accelerate the production of solar panels, while helping manufacturers reduce their carbon and chemical footprints and lower their overall risk.

By sharing what we learn, we can build expertise and leadership capacity across industries and communities. Specific plans including an annual Summer Institute, GreenScreen and Chemical Footprint Training, as well as an accessible database and knowledge infrastructure using data-driven science, predictive analytics and visualization of complex data sets.

Looking for Data?

We are currently working on online tools that will allow researchers to model the impact of solar panel production, see the affect on communities, and communicate with other researchers. If you are interested in viewing or sharing data, please contact us.
