The Australian Renewable Energy Agency will commit $20M for the research and development of solar PVs in a bid to make it more affordable, efficient and competitive.

On May 23, the agency announced its third competitive research and development funding round. Since 2012, ARENA has committed about $109.3 million in funding to solar PV research and development projects, scholarships and fellowships, thus helping to break 14 separate solar efficiency world records.
