We are pleased to announce that The Clean Tech Breakfast Series is being sponsored again by Nixon Peabody and Moss Adams.

Topic Description:

Will Thin Film Take Over? Thin film technology will be the first to achieve the Holy Grail benchmark - retail grid parity - according to some experts. Is this realistic and will thin film become the dominant technology? What are the relative advantages and disadvantages of thin film technology in comparison to new crystalline and other evolving technologies? What are the key risks in achieving improvements in each of these technologies? Listen to leading companies developing thin film, and crystalline technologies describe the potential for their technology in reducing solar costs.
