Forecast solar and battery technology and costs

In collaboration with Exawatt, PVEL releases a quarterly Solar Technology and Cost (STAC) Forecast. It provides US module buyers forecasts for PV module efficiency, form factor, and 3-year price indicators.

The focus varies between reports and is driven by the most topical areas at any given time. Typical areas of discussion include polysilicon, ingots/wafers, cells, modules, silver, glass, and shipping.

Price forecasts are based on bottom-up modeling of manufacturing costs, manufacturer gross margins, and any relevant import tariffs.

STAC forecasts include:

  • Supply chain analysis
  • Module cost breakdown
  • US import and installation data
  • Policy/trade news update
  • Aggregated PQP data

Battery Technology and Cost (BTAC):

PVEL’s BTAC provides US energy storage buyers with forecasts based on a bottom-up methodology from the cathode-active material through the casing of the cell itself.

 

BTAC forecasts include:

  • Supply chain analysis
  • Market consolidation
  • Cost breakdown
  • Technology outlook
  • Policy/trade news update
