The end of the solar price crash

With solar and wind manufacturers struggling, the question of most relevance to Australia is: could this be the end of a honeymoon period of declining prices? It appears so, but that doesn't mean prices will rise.

A few days ago I caught up with Oliver Hartley, Managing Director of the Australian operations for Hanwha-Q-Cells – one of the world’s largest producers of solar PV cells and modules. 

The story of Q-Cells is in many respects a mirror of the plight for the wider renewable energy equipment manufacturing sector.
