While the biggest photovoltaic producers of today push to optimize manufacturing and output, their fortunes could change sharply if a new kid on the block with a technology that dramatically cuts PV production costs and ramps up cell performance proves to be scalable. Globally, the solar industry is experiencing a period of heavy consolidation and international trade wars.
