It’s not a controversial thing to say at all. But as we transition to a cleaner, greener global economy, the fact that we must engage in complex manufacturing processes to convert quartz mined from the ground into the purified solar-grade silicon sitting on roofs around the world presents us with a difficult question. How can we ensure that the energy-intensive process of manufacturing solar panels is as clean as possible?

Since the world first began to confront the realities of climate change, our relationship with energy has been rapidly shifting. A growing focus on the climate and cost-of-living crisis, coupled with the ongoing conflict in Ukraine and increasing supply chain pressures, has highlighted the fragility of centralized, fossil-based energy sources. Around the world, freedom from these traditional energy sources is top-of-mind, and as energy costs continue to climb, people are looking for alternatives that provide financial savings, energy security, and climate stability.
