Planning and analysis for development and commercialization of photovoltaic energy conversion systems : final report
Author(s)Massachusetts Institute of Technology Energy Laboratory in association with the Sloan School of Management and the Dept. of Urban Studies and Planning..
Near term consideration of development and commercialization requirements of photovoltaic power systems will increase the potential information generated during the experimental and field test phases of the photovoltaic technology development process. This report summarizes the research activities of the MIT Energy Laboratory Photovoltaics Project during its first year. The report discusses results of residential systems modeling, or market survey analysis and institutional analysis carried out in conjunction with the large scale photovoltaic field test at Mead, Nebraska, preliminary analysis of the social and environmental costs of photovoltaic power system development relative to conventional electrical power generation and the development of energy system R&D decision models. In addition, the report lists project reports and briefly discusses research work to be carried out in the second year of the project.
