What’s trending in solar?
Has the U.S. solar industry changed since we launched Solar Power World in 2011? More than slightly. For starters, the U.S. has five times the solar capacity.
And for industry veterans who can look back to the beginning of their renewable energy careers—five, 10 or 20 years ago—the technology and financial landscape is entirely evolved, with supply chains, market acceptance and big-bank financing.
Still, exactly how the industry has changed, and how these changes are affecting solar businesses, can depend on who you talk to and where they work.
We’ve sought opinions from different locations to determine what’s trending in solar today. Our findings are shared with you in our Trends section, covering topics from financing to site assessment to components.
As always, our regular departments deliver actionable insight, including how to handle frameless modules, the new grid functions of inverters and even marketing advice on how to perfect your sales message.
We hope that as you walk the floor at Intersolar North America, information in this issue can serve as talking points to keep the conversation going. See you there!
