    The competitive environment in the solar industry changed dramatically in 2011, and companies have been forced to adjust their operational strategies to ensure long-term success and profitability. PwC-PRTM has benchmarked the operational, financial, and growth performance of major companies across the solar value chain for eight years, and publishes the results annually in PwC-PRTM’s PV Sustainable Growth Index. This session will review the latest insights from the 2012 PV Sustainable Growth Index, and a group of executives from leading solar manufacturers will discuss how they are adjusting their operations to remain competitive and maintain/improve profitability in the current competitive environment.  The panel will address some of the following industry trends:

    •    Industry consolidation and separation of the leading players from the smaller players

    •    Continued focus on vertical integration and moving closer to the customer

    •    End market transition from Europe to the US/Asia and how this impacts global operations

    •    Challenges for CIGS thin-film manufacturers to achieve the scale needed to drive down costs

    •    Development of new, innovative business models to stimulate growth
