Location Virtual
Region Americas

Rising raw materials prices and grid congestion pose questions for the industry and the summit will bring a fantastic speaker panel together to solve these. We will also discuss the benefits of higher-efficiency modules, how to utilize trackers and data to maximize yield across a portfolio, how companies are minimizing risk on merchant projects, how changing contracts are exposing companies to more merchant risk, the huge opportunities in both the residential and community energy sectors and a state-by-state analysis of where the industry can find new opportunity. We will, of course, also assess the collocation of solar PV and energy storage and dig into project economics and the methods companies have chosen to make these viable.
