The goal of the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Solar Energy Technologies Program is to enable high penetration of solar energy technologies and achieve cost- competitiveness with grid electricity by 2015. In addition to research and development efforts, the Solar Program helps overcome barriers to adoption by addressing non-research and development issues such as workforce development.

Through this Request for Information (RFI), DOE seeks input from all parties with perspectives on how the quality of the solar industry workforce can be improved through certification and accreditation of industry-related personnel and organizations, and on the role DOE should have in facilitating this effort. This announcement is a RFI only. DOE will not pay for information provided under this RFI and there is no guarantee that a project will be supported as a result of this RFI. This RFI is not accepting applications for financial assistance or financial incentives.
