    Key Tech and Trends Shaping the Next Decade of Solar and Storage Development

    The 2020s were poised to be the decade that the clean energy transition hit the accelerator. Has COVID-19 stopped, paused, or highlighted the opportunity inexpensive solar and storage has in transforming the energy industry? A panel of experts looks at how key technologies and trends such as PPAs, community solar, DERMs, and tax-credits are impacting solar and storage development.

    Power of Regional Innovation Hubs to Usher in a Clean Energy Future

    Innovation doesn’t happen in a vacuum; rather it’s better served by collaboration and diversity of thought. Regional hubs offer the benefits of cultural and geographic familiarity with a mix of types of organizations and expertise. This panel will discuss how the power of regional innovation hubs can be harnessed to move us towards a clean energy future.

    Just Save it for Later: Batteries for Bulk Power

    Intermittency: one of the biggest barriers preventing renewables from displacing traditional centralized generation sources. What if it’s a cloudy day? What if the wind isn’t blowing when demand is high? Traditionally, this is where centralized coal-fired and natural gas plants come in to provide reliability for the grid. Recent technological developments in battery storage are solving the intermittency issue and displacing traditional centralized generation. Battery storage is the key to decarbonizing bulk power sources. This panel will discuss the role of batteries in the energy transition and decarbonizing the bulk power system.

    Expanding Solar to New Markets

    We're often told that solar power is more accessible and cheaper than it has ever been, but cost and accessibility are still obstacles to adoption in many areas. With the threat of climate change already affecting global weather systems, can we really afford to keep denying home solar generation to homeowners and landowners who want to be responsible but can't handle the price or logistics? In this panel we will discuss how we can continue to remove barriers to home solar and how we can make access to it more equitable.
