Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), the SunShot Prize challenges the ingenuity of America’s businesses and communities to make it faster, easier, and cheaper to install rooftop solar energy systems. This competition offers a total of up to $10 million in cash awards to the first three teams that repeatedly demonstrate an average of $1 per watt (W) for non-hardware costs such as customer acquisition, finance, permitting and interconnection. For more information on the competition, please click here.

The College of Nanoscale Science & Engineering (CNSE) will host a one day workshop focused on solar soft cost challenges and how the SunShot Prize can help spur business innovation. The workshop will feature high-level keynote speakers. Topics covered will include:
  • Soft Cost Market Update
  • Spurring Technology/Business Innovation for PV Implementation 
  • Panel Discussion: Challenges in Customer Acquisition & Finance 
  • Panel Discussion: Innovations in Installation, Permitting & Interconnection 
  • Brainstorming: New Business Models & Winning Scenarios

Join us April 10, 2013 for an interactive and insightful conversation on the pathways of rooftop PV deployment, weigh in on the discussion topics and speak with industry experts and market players during the networking session.
