Fraunhofer Institute for Sustainable Energy Systems (CSE) has been the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Solar Project (Sunshot Initiative) selected, project financing, solar program is a cooperation program aimed a decade after the solar more cost-competitive compared with other forms of energy.
CSE five-year, $ 11.7 million research project dedicated to the development of "plug and play" solar photovoltaic (PV) system, a homeowner does not require the purchase of solar panel energy can be achieved by external consultants or contractors, installation and grid connection.
The project is a DOE to invest a larger part of the $ 21 million worth of projects, the project aims to develop technology solutions to reduce residential solar photovoltaic system "soft" costs, the total of non-component hardware costs accounted for a residential system most of the cost is a huge obstacle to the United States to further enable solar electricity generation.
View of the DOE's investment, CSE will create technology to reduce the cost of residential solar components, systems and standards, aimed at the development of a large number of pre-configured system, homeowners can select the day, purchase, installation, and appointed, all of which do not require specialized building inspection.
Eliminate these sources of "soft costs" will make residential solar cell PV systems more cost-competitive and the homeowners more attractive, open up a new large-scale solar power production for the U.S. market and create conditions.
CSE's plug-and-play in

accelerate the solar photovoltaic system. As part of a clean energy policy in Commonwealth
of Massachusetts , Gov.
Deval Patrick (Deval Patrick) is set to 2017 solar installed capacity of 250MW
installed capacity of 176MW target this month. Massachusetts
and the Massachusetts Department of Energy, a joint venture of the green
community sector the Solarize's plan to help achieve this objective. Massachusetts Clean
Chief Executive Officer of the
Alicia the Barton (Alicia Barton McDevitt) said: "to find a new make solar panel price energy more efficient and inexpensive way to expand its use and to promote the
development of the solar industry in .
We are pleased to support the Fraunhofer efforts to develop innovative
technologies to create a clean energy future for Massachusetts residents and businesses.
Massachusetts Department of Energy Director Mark Sylvia (Mark Sylvia), said: "This is another step in our efforts to reduce the soft costs of solar installation projects in order to continue to have a competitive price in the market.,
has the nation's most active greenhouse gas emission reduction targets, this
kind of work is the foundation of our success. " Massachusetts
