    EERE's Solar Energy Technologies Office (SETO) is seeking to support postdoctoral researchers to apply and advance cutting-edge data science to drive toward the national solar cost reduction goals.

  • Solar Systems Integration:

    The Systems Integration program of SETO aims to address the technical and operational challenges associated with connecting solar energy to the electricity grid.

  • Concentrating Solar Thermal for Electricity, Chemicals, and Fuels:

    oncentrating solar power (CSP) technologies use mirrors or other light collecting elements to concentrate and direct sunlight onto receivers.[1] These receivers absorb the solar flux and convert it to heat. The heat energy may be stored until desired for dispatch to generate electricity, synthesize chemicals, desalinate water or produce fuels, among other applications.

  • Photovoltaic Materials, Devices, Modules, and Systems:

    In photovoltaic hardware, substantial materials and system challenges remain in many current and near-commercial technologies. Research projects are sought in applied and interdisciplinary science and engineering to improve the performance and reliability of photovoltaic materials, devices, modules, and systems in order to drive down energy costs.
