The cost of creating solar cells
At the Always On Venture Summit in Half Moon Bay, Calif., a panel of solar energy executives debates whether or not silicon prices will fall as the industry matures. While they all think margins will narrow, they disagree on whether there will be an industry wide shakeout, or if the polysilicon and silicon wafer markets will move up and down separately. Panelists include Suvi Sharma, CEO of Solaria, and Peter Nieh, managing director of Lightspeed Venture Partners. The moderator is David Chen, managing director of Morgan Stanley.
