Energy Seminar: Ramping Renewables: China's Boom-Bust Bid to Make Solar Power Big

In less than a decade, China has become the world's largest maker of solar panels. Now China's solar industry is bleeding -- the result of a too-fast expansion, a global recession, and a pullback in government subsidies from Europe. China's furious ramp-up of solar-panel manufacturing has slashed the cost of solar power from the Bay Area to Berlin. Yet it has infuriated politicians in the U.S. and Europe. In this conversation, executives from two leading Chinese solar companies survey their industry's troubles, assess its prospects, and consider the future of solar power around the world. Located in Stanford's NVIDIA Auditorium, Jen-Hsun Huang Engineering Center.
