One Step Ahead: The Competitive Advantage for U.S. Solar & Storage Manufacturing
Friday, October 2, 2020
2:05 PM – 2:50 PM EDT
The roadmap for solar to supply 20 percent of US electricity depends on a substantial expansion of domestic manufacturing, not only for modules but each link in the solar value chain. Public sector incentives and market drivers that stimulate project development cannot by themselves spark technology development. The private sector must also leverage industrial automation, advanced materials, artificial intelligence and adopt lessons learned from other sectors of US manufacturing. In this session leading developers of commercial solar technology and global manufacturing partners will discuss the importance of delivering the innovation necessary to put solar on equal footing with the leading sources of electricity generation.
