Turning Solar Panel Recycling Woes into Industry Wins

Event Detail

Solar power is the most efficient, renewable and cost-effective source of electricity today and critical to our planet’s sustainability. But according to the market research firm Rystad Energy, solar PV waste will grow to 27 million tons annually by 2040. For solar to truly scale to its full potential, we need to create a domestic renewable supply chain and a vibrant secondary market for used panels and recycled materials.

Join SOLARCYCLE, DEPCOM Power, Silicon Ranch, and SEIA to discuss responsible solutions to solar panel recycling that are both ecological and economical, including how to extend solar asset longevity, as well as plan and mitigate system damage from extreme weather events.  The panelists will share what owners can do with panels after they are decommissioned or damaged.

SEIA members will walk away with increased knowledge on: 

  • How to extend asset longevity while planning and mitigating system damage from extreme weather events.
  • What to do with panels after decommissioning or damage and how to proactively manage recycling and end-of-life issues.
  • How to turn problems into opportunities through creating value streams from refurbished and recycled PV materials.
  • How to demonstrate to key community stakeholders that you are proactively and responsibly managing end-of-life issues


  • Suvi Sharma, CEO and Co-Founder, SOLARCYCLE
  • John Schroeder, EVP & Co-Founder, DEPCOM Power
  • Reagan Farr, CEO and Co-Founder, Silicon Ranch
  • Evelyn Butler, Vice President of Technical Services, SEIA (Moderator)
