Our Core Objectives
DuraMAT provides a suite of easily accessible capabilities to facilitate applied research and development. Equally important, we understand the technical issues that you need to address and can help you develop a team using these capabilities to come up with solutions. We integrate the following core objectives into our research strategy.
Collect and disseminate module reliability data, and apply data science to derive new insights.
Develop modeling tools to rapidly scale accelerated testing results and quantitatively assess the impacts and degradation modes of new materials and designs.
Quantify and characterize module failure modes during outdoor exposure, and study changes in materials and performance properties during testing and deployment.
Focus on understanding how PV materials, modules, and systems will perform outdoors based on relatively aggressive experimental conditions.
Design, develop, de-risk innovative materials and module architectures to address PV reliability issues using DuraMAT capabilities.
