Brad Mattson, renowned Silicon Valley tech entrepreneur, started working on his book (called Solar 2.0 at the time) over a year ago and introduced its key messages here at the IEEE SCV PV chapter.  A lot has happened since then, and now Brad is back to tell the full story.  His book, “The SOLAR PHOENIX: How America Can Rise from the Ashes of Solyndra to World Leadership in Solar 2.0”, offers a detailed roadmap of how solar will lead us to the new energy economy and outlines how the United States can beat manufacturing juggernauts like China by using advanced solar manufacturing technology developed here in the United States.  Please come hear Brad discuss the key themes from his book, including how:
– Solar is the biggest energy story of this century, with major global impact on: economy, health, climate, security and poverty.
– The tipping point for solar has arrived, igniting what will be a multi-decade growth explosion that takes us from 100GW to 15,000GW of solar capacity.
– America can be a solar superpower and dominate Solar 2.0, manufacturing at a lower cost and higher quality than China.
At the presentation, hard copies of the book will be available for the first time, and Brad will be available for signing.  Throughout his presentation Brad will also hand out a limited number of free copies.
