Industrializing Solar

At the recent European Photovoltaic Industry Association conference (EU PVSEC), I had the opportunity to address attendees about the industrialization of solar energy. Through our experience in enabling the semiconductor and display industries, I was able to share Applied’s perspective on the three stages of growth in the evolution of any industry (a) development (b) scaling and (c) mainstream.
