The State of Solar Photovoltaic Research in South Africa: A Review

The objective of the review was to provide an overview of current PV research being carried out at South African Universities, Universities of Technology and other research institutions to identify common themes and priorities in this research. The report also aims to identify possible gaps that are not being covered by current PV research, to compile a profile of the SWH researchers actively working in the field and to make recommendations on future PV research focal areas for South Africa.
