Photovoltaics markets are growing fast and technology is evolving rapidly. The aim of this course is to explore the key drivers and trends in photovoltaics over the next 5 years. The course will consist of a series of lectures featuring guests from the MIT community and beyond. The technical emphasis of the course will be strong but balanced, to expand the horizons of both individuals with scientific & engineering as well as non-technical backgrounds.
