Solar PV R&DProject APVI Silicon to Solar Study
These reports examine manufacturing opportunities across the solar PV supply chain in Australia from polysilicon, through wafers, cells and modules and offers recommendations on how Australia can proceed in the future.
“Australia’s biggest opportunity for growth and prosperity is the global shift to clean energy” according to the Australian Government. For Australia to turn this opportunity into reality, the shift needs to be bold, decisive and starting now. Building a viable, relevant and timely solar photovoltaic (PV) manufacturing industry can address the risk of energy dependency, provide a direct return in the form of investment, jobs, and new exports, and deliver a long-term reward by reversing the trend of Australia’s decline in manufacturing while at the same time increasing Australia’s economic complexity and labour productivity.
