DuraMAT’s projects use, leverage, and build upon the capability network to study module material durability and module reliability. They include:
- Material development and characterization
- Material degradation
- Development of test methods and characterization techniques
- Studies of module reliability.
University professors and companies in the module value chain lead the projects. As part of their scope, each project team significantly collaborates with a national laboratory.
DuraMAT solicits project proposals in a competitive, peer-reviewed process once each year. We announce them on our website, via the DuraMAT email list, and at our spring and fall workshops.
