The international standards currently used strongly underestimate the real conditions of the Atacama Desert, Chile. ATAMOSTEC aims to create PV technologies adapted to the desert and a Chilean Desert Label to boost the local solar industry, and to contribute on the decrease of the LCOE of PV technologies (Modules, BoS and O&M). We present preliminary work performed in ATAMOSTEC Consortium as the base to create the Chilean Desert Label for PV technologies and our vision on the future of PV research and development applied to the industry. Furthermore, the ATAMO n-type PV technology has been exposed outdoor for seven months and preliminary results are shown.
