Solar PV prices halved by 2010: Sharp
The president of Japan’s Sharp Co. told Reuters today that he expects the cost of generating solar power will be slashed in half within the next four years. He went on to say that solar power will be competitive with nuclear power by 2030.
But here’s the kicker: When asked about solar’s competitiveness with coal and other fossil fuels by 2030, Sharp’s president replied that “fossil fuel resources will be totally out by then.”
Interesting, hopeful — and maybe a tad unrealistic — comments from a top executive at the world’s biggest maker of solar cells.
