As the threat of global warming looms over planet earth, companies are turning toward renewable energy sources such as solar and wind to minimize carbon pollution and lower its impact on our environment. Recently, leaps in innovations made with solar energy technology are proving to be game-changers for various industries.
For instance, the most common type of solar cell used today is that of crystalline silicon (c-Si) which has dominated the solar industry for decades. While there are other materials that can be layered in thin films, like copper indium gallium selenide (CIGS) and cadmium telluride (CdTe), the films are thinner, expensive, and difficult to produce. Hence, these films have barely imprinted their significance in the market because they are expensive and difficult to produce. There have also been innovations such as thin-film photovoltaics (PV). Thin-film PV’s minimal resource requirements result in lower manufacturing costs. Even without silicon PV’s economies-of-scale advantage, thin-film PV is able to compete with first-generation crystalline silicon technologies.
In the wake of these technology transitions, Energy CIO Insights has compiled a list of top 10 solar energy tech consulting/services companies that are harnessing the power of technology to tackle today’s umpteen climate challenges.
We are glad to feature Solar Optimum, a CA-based firm that offers solar panel and solar plus storage services for commercial and residential markets. The company designs, installs, and maintains residential solar electric systems specifically tailored to customers’ needs. Solar Optimum’s highly-skilled technical team also monitors the installed solar systems at real-time to detect power or service interruption at real-time and rectify it. Another featured company is New York-based Syncarpha Capital, which uses an end-to-end approach to develop and operate low-cost and high-performance PV solar plants, by leveraging best of breed technology and expertise in both the finance and renewable energy fields.
With several innovative technological capabilities and success stories up its sleeves, these emerging and leading players are continually proving their mettle in the solar energy landscape. To further substantiate solar tech transformation, the magazine also features industry insights provided by C-level executives.
We hope this issue of Energy CIO Insights helps you build the partnership you and your firm needs to gain a comprehensive understanding as to how solar energy technologies can strategize growth.
