The Market Value and Cost of Solar Photovoltaic Electricity Production Abstract:
The high cost of power from solar photovoltaic (PV) panels has been a major deterrent to the technology's market penetration. Proponents have argued, however, that typical analyses overlook many of the benefits of solar PV. Some of those benefits are in the realm of environmental and security externalities, but others occur within the electricity markets. In this talk, Prof. Severin Borenstein will do a more complete market valuation of solar PV.
Severin Borenstein is the E.T. Grether Professor of Business and Public Policy at the Haas School of Business, University of California at Berkeley, and the Director of the University of California Energy Institute.
