|Maybe not the father of solar energy but a tremendously influential and critical thinker .|
“There are decades where nothing happens; and there are weeks where decades happen.”
- Vladimir Ilyich Lenin
Solar energy development appears to be following this dictum. Massive changes are happening in the business almost on a daily basis. The speed of change is so fast that it makes it difficult to comprehend it or make accurate predictions or plans for the future. In all probability, we will have an entirely new energy infrastructure in less than a couple of decades. How this might happen or what shape this new energy system will take is still far from certain.
In the face of uncertainty, don't lose hope--focus on the basics. Work to continually improve your general health and intellect. Study your industry and market. Engage with customers and suppliers. Think about the major issues you face on a daily basis and try new things. Solar energy will win because it's the energy source that got us to where we are today. It's now the time for us to become more a little more sophisticated about how we harness it and much more intentional about how we apply it.
