Technical View

Exawatt leverages its experience in manufacturing technology to explain where the PV industry is heading

Exawatt understands manufacturing. We've been there. Our team members have many years of manufacturing experience, encompassing factory design, technology R&D, process development, operations and management. 

We take pride in having created what we believe is the PV industry's most comprehensive industry model, which combines traditional top-down demand-based market analysis with a bottom-up manufacturing model that takes account of technical developments as well as materials and equipment costs. This combination allows us to develop technical and commercial roadmaps of unrivalled accuracy. 

As PV matures from a subsidy-driven business to a mature industry that competes on equal terms with more traditional forms of energy, Exawatt is expanding its focus to encompass all forms of energy generation.
