The Innovators Behind Solar’s Rise

On-Demand Webinar


Join OPIS journalists, market experts and a panel of industry executives for “The Innovators Behind Solar’s Rise,” a part of the Dow Jones Energy & Sustainability Issue Briefing Series. Recorded September 20, 2023.

Solar capacity is growing so rapidly that the International Energy Agency predicts within five years it will surpass coal as the biggest power source. Solar has advantages over wind and hydro: The sun shines most everywhere, and both industry and consumers are producers — fostering a “democratization” of power. Still, there are supply-chain, regulatory and other challenges. Explore the technology, the players and the road ahead.
