Abstract The primary objective of the SuperSolar Network is to maintain and improve an inclusive and co-ordinated network for the Photovoltaics (PV) research community in the UK. The Network will include all solar technologies from fundamental research through to module engineering and will champion the role of solar in the overall energy mix. The SuperSolar Network will achieve impact by reaching out to the wider community through its already substantial Associate and Network membership. It will work with the Supergen Hubs such as Energy Storage and Grid Net on areas of mutual interest. By including practitioners from all areas of solar energy, we will identify and support promising new areas of research using flexible funding.
