New Canadian solar photovoltaic research network established; based at McMaster University
Date:2/3/2010

A new research network to advance Canada's standing in the development of solar photovoltaics will be based at McMaster University.

The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) announced $5 million in funding today for the establishment of the NSERC Photovoltaic Innovation Network. The Network is comprised of 29 top scientists and engineers working in the field of advanced solar cell research at 13 universities across Canada. Eleven private sector companies are also part of the network.

The Network aims to raise the status of solar photovoltaics (PV) as a renewable energy option in Canada by accelerating research and development and commercializing the outcomes.

"In particular, the network will develop new intellectual property in PV for adoption by Canadian industry to supply strong domestic demand currently met by foreign companies," explained Rafael Kleiman, Scientific Director of the Network and a Professor of Engineering Physics at McMaster. "It will help Canada compete globally in this rapidly growing sector."

The Network anticipates training 88 research personnel over five years to provide highly skilled and creative employees for positions in industry and academia.

"Our government's investments in science and technology are creating jobs, stimulating the economy and improving Canadians' quality of life," noted the Honourable Tony Clement, Minister of Industry. "We are investing more in innovation than ever before in Canada's history. By supporting the research being done by these networks, we are building the economy of tomorrow and helping our universities blaze the way to greater long-term prosperity and innovation that will benefit Canadians for years to come."

The NSERC Photovoltaic Network is one of 11 research networks announced today, which will receive $56 million in NSERC grants over five years.
