This week started with us getting ready to the Solar Fair, one of the biggest conferences in the world, that happened on Tuesday (July 12th).
Each team had a spoken person who gave a short presentation showing all the work we have accomplished during these last weeks. The ISE Team spoken person was Gabriel and our presentation was focused on how communication and organization can lead your project to success and also how we've been working to improve these two areas.
Before the presentations, we walked around the fair divided into groups in order to do as much networking as possible. My group covered level 1 and 2, to get more involved with the following topics: PV Cells, Modules and System, Batteries, Energy Storage System, and Charging Technologies.
Sharing what I've learned there, one of the first companies I contacted was Fortune Energy and I had a really good conversation with the Senior Manager. I found out there are very few companies that sell solar panels nowadays. He told me the reason for having a kind of monopoly is the high initial investment and capital to sustain this business. He has been working in this sector for 4 years and he said, in the beginning, there were no companies selling solar panels, what means this market increased a lot in a short period of time.
In sum, I really enjoyed having had the opportunity to go there and know more about Solar Energy!
See you in the next post.
