What we're all about

The Australia-US Institute for Advanced Photovoltaics is developing the next generations of photovoltaic technology, providing a pipeline of opportunities for performance increase and cost reduction.

This international research collaboration provides a pathway for highly visible, structured photovoltaic research collaboration between Australian and American researchers, research institutes and agencies, with significant joint programs based on the clear synergies between participating bodies.

The Institute significantly accelerates photovoltaic development beyond that achievable by Australia or US individually, leveraging past and current funding, by combining the Australian Centre for Advanced Photovoltaics (ACAP) with the recently announced NSF/DOE Energy Research Center for Quantum Energy and Sustainable Technologies (QESST), based at Arizona State University, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, Sandia National Laboratories, the Molecular Foundry at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratories, Stanford University, Georgia Institute of Technology and University of California – Santa Barbara.
