    Extremely technical and great presentation which talks about the different advantages/disadvantages of various PV technologies. He also explains the technology used by various PV manufacturers.

    Lyndon Rive’s (CEO of SolarCity) presentation is also quite informative.

    I apreciate the balanced discussion focusing on technology but mentioning economic and other aspects..we need more focus on goals and targets for society so that we can optimize usage to places with many solar hours and solar peek loads

    a-Si:H solar cells are only ~5-10 nm thick so what he says about the time to deposit a 0.3 mm thick layer is not really relevant.
