The solar industry is now recovering from the ambitious capacity build-out and price crash of 2011-2012, and investment – both strategic and project-based – is making its way back into the industry. Historically, low system prices have enabled a broad demand market for solar, which only continues to grow both in size and influence, globally. However, industry participants benefiting from this growth must also deal with intense competition to improve technology and a dynamic policy landscape.
Lux Research helps investors, governments, and stakeholders capitalize on the evolving landscape by helping to:
  • Identify profitable, competitive technology improvements along the value chain, from polysilicon to modules and systems
  • Assess a wide array of technology providers along the value chain, from start-ups to large incumbents
  • Understand key transactions and changes in the competitive landscape and their impacts on both the materials and energy industries
  • Translate complex policy drivers into an actionable market strategy
  • Provide data-driven growth opportunities to boost revenues
