The University of Toledo (UT) has a long history of interdisciplinary research, development, and commercialization of thin-film photovoltaic technologies. In recognition of UT’s commitment to PV innovation, the Ohio Department of Development awarded $18.6 M in 2007 in response to a proposal to form the Wright Center for Photovoltaics Innovation and Commercialization (PVIC). Matching contributions of $30 M from federal agencies, universities, and industrial partners supported PVIC’s initial research efforts. UT’s PVIC at UT consists of an Ohio-based world class technology platform employing second and third generation PV materials tailored primarily for applications in clean solar electricity generation.
