Future scenarios for US PV markets - JF4S at Intersolar North America

(PresseBox) (Bonn/ San Francisco, ) On July 11th, conference participants are invited for both a macro and micro view of the US photovoltaic market at Intersolar North America. The latest market developments will be highlighted and discussed during presentations and subsequent expert panel discussions.

During Intersolar North America, the 7th PV Briefing & Networking Forum USA will provide both macro and micro views of developments in the US photovoltaic market on July 11th at 2.30pm. The show starts with a view on current market situation in California with "The Californian PV Market - Scenarios for 2012 and beyond". Panelists at the subsequent panel discussion will pick up details previously presented and will exchange thoughts and opinions with the audience about the topic "How to ensure sustainable growth in California & the USA?". The discussion sees several market professionals including Thomas Koerner, (Astronergy), Donald Miller (Enerparc Inc.), Dr. Thomas Kneip (Centrosolar America), Spencer Smith (Q.Cells North America) and Matthias F.

Questions on the agenda of the panel discussion are, amongst others, whether or not the USA needs to increase the renewable energy target goals at the state level in order to further fuel solar development. Panelists will also discuss the rapid growth of the US rooftop PV market, its long term potential and the changing role of PV manufacturers, distributors and installers to ensure sustainable growth. Taking a closer look at the Californian PV market, in particular, panelists will examine the impact FIT pricing mechanisms have had on market development in California as well as whether strong growth in the open space segment will trigger stricter implementation of the environmental impact analysis of multi-megawatt desert based PV installations. The event will be rounded off with expert insight on developments in Latin American PV markets.
