A new generation of solar panels could transform the way we power our homes and businesses, according to a panel of industry experts.
The panel of experts — from electric vehicles to battery-electric vehicles to energy storage and storage systems — will meet at a conference at the World Economic Forum (WEF) on Sept. 26-27.
The conference aims to bring together more than 100 leaders in the renewable energy industry, and it comes at a time when the U.S. is facing a massive drought in the western United States.
The panel will also highlight solar’s growing potential as a way to reduce carbon emissions.
“The solar industry is growing,” said Dan Auerbach, CEO of the Institute for Energy Research, or IER.
“We’ve got a huge opportunity to make solar more affordable, and we have a huge need for it.”
Solar panels are becoming more and more popular, but they’re still not widely adopted.
For that, Auerbs group is calling on companies to do the right thing and get on board with solar energy.
“We’re looking for companies that are not only interested in taking the lead in making solar more cost-competitive, but also are willing to build a sustainable business model that makes solar an attractive alternative for businesses that are building new or existing solar projects,” Auerbins group said.
The group, which includes leaders in solar and batteries, has seen a rapid increase in applications for solar power.
The panels have been used to power homes and vehicles, but solar energy has been used for energy storage in cars, home appliances, and even to power power stations.
Auerbs says the solar industry can help us make this transition more cost effective.
“I think we’ve got this opportunity in the solar energy sector to really change the way the energy system is built, the way it’s used, and the way you use energy,” he said.
