Through Economically Viable Technology
Dr. Michael Woodhouse
- Solar PV Technologies and Economic Analyst
- Strategic Energy Analysis Center, National Renewable Energy Laboratory
In this talk, Dr. Michael Woodhouse will discuss the economic barriers that must still be overcome before there can be energy-significant Terawatts adoption levels. Woodhouse will highlight the recent trends in PV module and system prices, and will show how those trends are helping to make the economic barriers less daunting. He will also highlight some of the challenges that remain and will discuss several innovations that are being pursued globally to address them.
Michael Woodhouse received his PhD in physical chemistry and materials science from Colorado State University. Woodhouse is currently a member of NREL’s Strategic Energy Analysis Center, where his analysis activities are focused on the technical and economic considerations of solar energy harvesting and storage, as well as the integration of such systems into the global energy infrastructure.
