Navigating changing dynamics in U.S. module supply

The U.S. solar market has been experiencing an oversupply of PV modules, accompanied by rapidly falling prices. However, the threat of a new solar AD/CVD case could turn oversupply into scarcity overnight. In this pv magazine Webinar, we examine the risks and opportunities the industry’s rapidly changing supply environment presents to buyers and other project stakeholders and look at the most effective ways to manage them.

Navigating ethical sourcing and compliance in PV module supply chains

In this pv magazine Webinar, together with CEA, we will provide an overview of the locations and capacity of the upstream PV supply chain and outline the pros and cons of various sourcing strategies.

A deep dive into battery supply chain and pricing

In this pv magazine Webinar, we will discuss battery energy storage system (BESS) pricing and associated market drivers behind those price trends. A five-year outlook for DC container and battery cell pricing will be presented and examined.

Variables to consider in solar module procurement

While module procurement decisions in the past several years have largely been dictated by price, shifting dynamics in the industry are changing that. Factors such as supply chain reliability and traceability, changes in module technologies, and extreme weather events are shifting the decision-making processes for purchasers. In this pv magazine webinar, we will review these factors and others to consider when making a purchase.

The IRA domestic content bonus and its implications on developers and manufacturers

The domestic content bonus credit contained within the Inflation Reduction Act provides an attractive bonus to solar project developers and was designed to drive demand for domestically produced solar products in the United States. In this pv magazine Webinar we will review the details of the domestic content bonus, including recent guidance released by the Internal Revenue Service, and the challenges to access the bonus.

Greening hydrogen, the promise beyond the hype

Major decarbonization opportunities lie in the production of green hydrogen. However, cutting through the hype to identify the demand, use cases, and technologies that can deliver a thriving green hydrogen industry requires detailed technical and market knowledge. Join this pv magazine Webinar to discover more about when and where green hydrogen makes sense, and what technologies are best suited to its production, and financially-viable transportation and use.

How energy storage buyers can mitigate upstream supply chain risk

In this pv magazine Webinar, we will discuss potential traceability risks in the lithium-ion battery supply chain, explain how buyers of energy storage systems can take action on their responsible supply chain, and show the steps that parties can take to mitigate those risks and improve vendor accountability.

The IRA Impact on U.S. Clean Energy Manufacturing

In this pv magazine Webinar, together with the experts from Clean Energy Associates (CEA) we will discuss the incentives created by the Inflation Reduction Act and how they can boost domestic solar manufacturing in the United States. We’ll also look at the progress on the ground in terms of manufacturing announcements to date and examine some of the barriers to domestic manufacturing that remain, and what can be done about them.

How to effectively procure energy storage in 2023

Effectively procuring energy storage is a real challenge today. Automotive buyers are dominating demand for the lithium-ion market, and battery prices have started increasing for the first time. To make matters more challenging, not all battery manufacturers are equal – engaging new suppliers can carry additional commercial and technical risk. In this pv magazine Webinar we will offer a guide to navigating those risks as a buyer of energy storage systems.

Cell cracking: the invisible performance thief

Industry awareness and mitigation of PV cell microcracks have improved in recent years, but there are signs that the problem may still be grossly underestimated by many. Microcracks can grow over time into full-fledged cell cracks and begin to have serious impacts on a PV system’s performance and safety. In this pv magazine Webinar, an expert from Clean Energy Associates (CEA) guides us through the risks posed by undetected microcracks, and what module buyers can do to prevent their development.
