U.S., Germany and Japan sign solar research agreement

The U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) signed a memorandum of understanding with Germany’s Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems and Japan’s Research Center for Photovoltaic Technologies, a research unit of the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology. The MOU was signed at the Intersolar North America show in San Francisco.

The goal of the group, called the Global Alliance of Solar Energy Research Institutes, is to accelerate progress toward shared solar research and development goals as well as to ensure sustainable long-term use of solar energy. It will also run a researcher exchange program for collaborative research in the other participant’s labs for research lasting anywhere from six months to two years.
