Wade Shafer (Presenter)
Learn about the state of PV and Energy Storage in the U.S. – and the opportunity and challenges related with the market growth. Following another record-breaking year of over 5 GW of installations, the US is on track to be the third largest global PV market in 2014. Largely enabled by the rapid improvements in PV, solar is emerging as a formidable source of power in key renewable power markets. California continues to be the leader in solar deployment, with renewable power policies and distributed generation fueling growth. The state is also helping lead the deployment of battery storage with the recently launched energy storage program. But PV’s rapid growth has also raised a host of policy questions across the US, which will have significant implications for the path of solar power. These key opportunities and challenges facing the US solar industry will be discussed as Wade takes stock of the current state of the US solar market and charts the path forward for US solar development.
