BOSTON, June 16 /PRNewswire/ -- With continued uncertainty surrounding the future of solar energy incentive subsidies, it has become increasingly clear that the levelized cost of solar electricity (LCOE) will be a critical long-term driver of solar demand and PV company profitability.
"As incentive policies continue to decrease, cost is going to play a critical role in how quickly solar energy becomes a viable, widely adopted source of electricity," said Michael Rogol, CEO of PHOTON Consulting. "Companies at each step of the solar supply chain need to cost benchmark their own performance and the performance of their supply chain. Ultimately, cost competitiveness will be one of the key factors to separate long-term winning companies from their peers."
PHOTON Consulting will host a webinar on Wednesday, June 23, 2010 at 9:30 a.m. (U.S. EDT)/2:30 p.m. (GMT) to discuss the evolving importance of PV cost and PHOTON Consulting's recently released 2010 cost report, The True Cost of Solar Power: How Low Can You Go?
