About this webinar
The US remains one of the most attractive global end-markets for large-scale utility-based solar PV deployment, with strong growth potential over the next decade. Understandably, PV module suppliers are keen that the US is prioritized within global shipment allocations.
However - with the exception of First Solar - virtually all PV modules for large-scale utility-based solar sites are imported to the US, especially from Chinese companies using manufacturing sites across Southeast Asia.
This puts extreme pressure on US site developers, EPCs and investors, in understanding fully the differences between the companies offering imported PV modules
How credible are the companies supplying the products? What is the financial health of the parent entity? Where is the module produced, and is this undertaken in-house or through third-party OEMs? What is the supply-chain for the module sub-components including wafers and cells? And then, how will the modules perform in the field, and is it possible to gauge reliability levels benchmarked against competitors?
This webinar will provide insights from two of the leading experts in PV module manufacturing, supply, performance and reliability: Jenya Meydbray of PV Evolution Labs and Finlay Colville from PV-Tech. The 1-hour session will include presentations from Jenya and Finlay, and then a brand-new supplier scorecard matrix that combines the key outputs from PVEL's Module Reliability Scorecard and PV-Tech's PV ModuleTech Bankability Ratings, with specific focus on module supply and use in the US market.
Join us for our special webinar to learn which module suppliers are best placed to benefit from continued growth in US utility-solar from 2021 and beyond.
