Intersolar North America Conference
Wednesday, July 14, 10:30 am
Moscone Center, San Francisco
Titled “Crossing the Chasm-Addressing Upstream and Downstream Challenges,” the panel will work as two groups to formulate workable solutions that could reduce the friction that frustrates key stakeholders in the PV supply chain. Their aim is to find ways to accelerate commercial progress toward more cost-effective and prevalent solar energy for homeowners and businesses. A lively session is expected.
The upstream team is represented by Enphase Energy, PG&E, SunPower, and Underwriters Laboratories; with the downstream team represented by PV Evolution Labs, Quick Mount PV, SolarNexus, and Tioga Energy. Each team will be challenged to provide ideas and solutions to address the issues faced by its counterpart, with a view to streamlining the entire PV value chain.
The panel is co-moderated by Evan Goldman, managing director of the Environmental Business Cluster and Christina Ellwood, president and CEO of Moreland Associates.
