A critical success factor in any roadmapping effort is broad inclusion of its members to ensure complimentary knowledge. In this way, considerations from all aspects of the industry add credibility to the discussions and dialog. The U.S. CIGS PV Roadmap members represent all areas of the industry — module producers and integrators, suppliers for equipment, materials and metrology tools, end-users, and the research community.
These teams are the heart and soul of the roadmapping effort. Their knowledge is most valuable in determining the most critical challenges, and opportunities for innovation to enable the US CIGS roadmap industry to achieve grid parity by reducing the cost per watt by 75% by 2020.
The RWGs are the authors of the various manufacturing roadmaps. Each team is comprised of experts to assess and project the technologies needed by a given timeframe to ensure success throughout the PV industry.
