Name of Task Force (TF): PV Materials Task Force

Global Technical Committee: Photovoltaic (PV) - Materials
Originating Technical Committee Region: North America

1. Charter: (State the objective of the proposed TF.)
1. Identify standardization needs and priorities for specifications, guidelines and procedures related to Materials that become an integral part of a PV “device” e.g. cells, modules, etc.

Examples of such material include, but are not limited to: substrates, TCO films, optical enhancement films, conductive interconnect, insulator materials, absorber films, PVB, EVA, backsheet, sputtering targets, starting material e.g. UMG Si, Poly-si, etc.

Specifically excluded: Bulk Chemicals, Gases and Water; these are already addressed in a separate TF

2. Ensure this activity supports the PV Standards Roadmap.

2. Scope: (Define the specific activities that the TF will conduct.)
1.Survey PV producers, material suppliers, other SDOs (e,g, ASTM, etc.) consortia (e.g. NREL, NIST, etc.) and DOE interests to validate and prioritize the prospective materials list.
2.Develop a list of key players to support the TF efforts.
3.Find leaders for selected TF activities.
4.Generate a document development plan

3. Formal linkages with TFs in other Regions/Locales: (Show each associated TF and its parent global technical committee; indicate nature of relationship – global TF, observer TF, etc.)
Europe – tbd
Japan – tbd
Taiwan – tbd
Korea - tbd
