Solar photovoltaic is the first and best alternative

Costs and growth

Solar PV is the world’s most cost-competitive power generation technology and is expected to grow rapidly for the foreseeable future, replacing CO2 intensive electricity production while creating tens of millions of jobs.

Massive industry growth and scaling are currently driving costs and with continued technological advancement, the mid-to-long term trend points towards further cost reduction. This, as well as linked technology and storage applications to further enhance electricity management, will only serve to increase the competitiveness of solar PV.

The energy transition

Climate change and decarbonising power generation are among the central issues the world is facing today.

We, as mankind, are at a historical turning point. Much stands in the balance. The consequences of climate change are likely to be catastrophic for society and we need to rapidly implement solutions – which are by and large available – to combat mankind’s CO2 footprint.

The task before us is enormous: decarbonising electricity production, phasing out fossil fuels and replacing them with renewable energy. This, all while meeting an increasing demand for electricity, dealing with volatile power prices and navigating significant energy security issues. These concerns are present throughout many parts of the world, complicating an already unprecedented undertaking.

Therefore, our mission is clear: to power the energy transition.
