description

The first wave of clean energy investments have been in solar solutions. Now that investments have taken place for decades, the verdict has been coming in on solar solutions: some have evaporated,  some have excelled, some are STILL up and coming, and some are amongst the walking dead. This leaves investors wary about funding new solar solutions, particularly if they are 'me-too' solutions, without innovation in technology or business models.
