The growth of the solar PV and storage market in the last five years has been driven by necessity to meet the growing global appetite for energy. The solar PV and storage market is one where opportunity remains high as the last few years has seen enough investment and research impetus to ensure there is ample opportunity for companies that can demonstrate technological development while reducing overall cost.
The development of affordable storage solutions for solar power will change the nature of electricity generation and distribution as we know it as the future of electricity generation is likely to veer away from the current model of centralised power production and distribution. In this highly competitive environment, which products, process and people will provide that creative ingenuity as we move towards intelligent solar power management and storage solutions.
These awards have been created to recognise the whole value chain and those people, products and services that will develop innovative manufacturing and product approaches that have the potential to change the way we live.
