Solar power market opportunities from technical point of view

  1. Oct 8, 2014 #1
    Hi guys,

    So, I'm a bit of an entrepreneur working on a social solar (small scale) endeavour in developing countries.

    However, I am wanting to build a sustainable company from standing out from the crowd in the solar industry. I'm just wondering if any of you have had experience with solar, or know something of the industry, and could suggest places where the technology could be improved?

    I know it's a multi billion dollar industry and massive amounts of money are being spent on R&D.
    Capital cost is probably one area of concern to your application.
