There have been vital modifications within the high 10 record in comparison with the earlier yr resulting from some giant M&A offers within the trade, with gigawatt-scale portfolios altering arms. In response to Mercom’s 2020 Photo voltaic Funding and M&A Report, about 40 GW of tasks modified arms in calendar yr 2020.

Not too long ago we debuted Power Forward! — a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to debate increased degree trade matters in addition to finest practices / tendencies for working a photo voltaic enterprise immediately.
Our longer working facet challenge is The Pitch — during which now we have awkward discussions with photo voltaic producers and suppliers about their new know-how and concepts in order that you do not have to. We have discusses the whole lot from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new dwelling solar + storage microgrids.
We additionally put up our Project of the Year bulletins there! Interviews with this yr’s winners might be up beginning the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe immediately to remain on high of all this further stuff.
