Worldwide funding for Solar Research and Development, using private and public funds, grew from some US$.7B in 2006 to an estimated US$2.1B in 2011, a growth rate of about 22%/yr. This is extraordinary in years of economic recession, so the reasons for it must make sound, logical, good sense. This talk will explore some of the reasons why solar PV is considered a strong contender for the marketplace. We shall examine trends in selected technological, financial, and policy measures across the globe, particularly in the US, Australia and Europe.
