re: PV installation growth rate to slow in 2011

The future is looking extremely good for solar, considering that the cost of a sq m of PV panel is about the same for an LCD TV. There is far more room for economy of scale and new tech to drastically drop prices. Plus, installed capacity is still doubling faster than every 2 years.

It seems that PV systems are loosing their air with each upcoming quarter (not ever year). I will not be surprised to see the iSupply forecasting even lower growth by next quarter. As long as the cost per kW of solar energy will remain uncompetitive to that of the fossil based energy, the future is bleak for solar. The same goes to the other energy sources.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
