This webinar, hosted by the Department of Energy's SunShot program on February 26th 2013 at 1PM ET, presents an update to the recent Berkeley Lab study, "Why Are Residential PV Prices in Germany So Much Lower Than in the United States?"

Establishing interconnection to the grid is a recognized barrier to the deployment of distributed energy generation. This report compares interconnection processes for photovoltaic projects in California and Germany.
To stimulate investment in renewable energy generation projects, the federal government developed a series of support structures that reduce taxes for eligible investors--the investment tax credit, the production tax credit, and accelerated depre
Utility-scale solar projects have grown rapidly in number and size over the last few years, driven in part by strong renewable portfolio standards (RPS) and federal incentives designed to stimulate investment in renewable energy technologies.
Over the last several years, solar energy technologies have been, or are in the process of being, deployed at unprecedented levels.
Technical concerns with integrating higher penetrations of photovoltaic (PV) systems include grid stability, voltage regulation, power quality (voltage rise, sags, flicker, and frequency fluctuations), and protection and coordination.
The SunShot Vision Study explored the potential growth of solar markets if solar prices decreased by about 75% from 2010 to 2020.
The price of photovoltaic (PV) systems in the United States (i.e., the cost to the system owner) has dropped precipitously in recent years, led by substantial reductions in global PV module prices.
The Solar Deployment System (SolarDS) model is a bottom-up, market penetration model that simulates the potential adoption of photovoltaics (PV) on residential and commercial rooftops in the continental United States through 2030.
