Over the years, the number of organizations working to crack the code for ultra-efficient solar cells have increased. Government agencies that once performed a majority of solar cell research are transitioning that science to private companies and universities through grants and student fellowships. This gives government agencies, like NASA and the Department of Defense, the resources to focus their efforts elsewhere.
For its part, NASA Glenn Research Center in Cleveland was the major hub for space solar cell research in the U.S., and the facility remains well-equipped to tinker with cell
