Business strategies for the changing solar industry

In the coming years, the international markets are set to be shaped by new technologies as well as a shift in the industry's significant regions. As a result, companies in the solar industry are faced with the challenges of predicting future market developments and adapting their strategies to these changing conditions as quickly as possible. New technologies and stiffer competition within the industry make it necessary to focus on promising markets and products. The success of future decisions thus depends on sound figures and expert assessments. Over 1,000 exhibitors and 50,000 expected visitors discuss this topic and others at Intersolar Europe, which boasts numerous parallel events, making it the world's leading information and strategy platform for the solar industry.
