Background

 In 2011, the solar industry will once again reduce costs and grow globally faster than predicted by stock analysts. This is our moment. With over 10% of global electricity coming from burning high cost diesel fuel and 20% of global electricity markets paying over $0.20/kWh – the solar industry still has a $10 Trillion market available to it without subsidies.

 The 2012 Solar Leadership Summit invites you to look at the bigger picture that is the global energy business in order to:

  • Identify remaining market barriers to better align capital markets with delivery of high speed, low cost, low risk projects.
  • Build capacity in Top 100 priority US markets by accelerating integration of market-based solutions, and best practices across the supply chain to reduce prices for consumers, expand the market, and create wealth
  • Shape the Solar3.0 platform to impact solar markets through unifying metrics, messaging, standards, and best practices
