WORLD LEADERS IN SOLAR RESEARCH
A searchable register of Australian based research capability in the fields of photovoltaic materials, cells, modules and their environmental stability.
ACAP—The Australian Centre for Advanced Photovoltaics—is a dynamic, world-leading national centre where solar photovoltaic research institutions across Australia collaborate.
ACAP’s broad range of research work continues to drive Australia’s international lead in solar technology and development, as global economies transition to renewable energy. Our strong pipeline from research to industry makes us a world leader in solar power technology development.
Federally funded by the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) since 2013, and led by the University of New South Wales, ACAP's partner institutions include the Australian National University, the CSIRO, the University of Melbourne, Monash University, and the University of Queensland.
Today’s $50b+ global solar industry exists as a direct result of our proud history of collaboration with our partners here and around the world. This global success story has brought solar power to millions of people, both here and around the world. This is the work that ACAP will continue to undertake as we develop the next generation of solar cell technologies that will power the globe.
