SAN RAFAEL, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SunLink Corporation will be joining the solar elite at this year’s Greentech Media Solar Summit, the industry’s premiere annual gathering for defining trade needs and creating new business opportunities in 2015. SunLink CEO Michael Maulick will speak on the panel Fast and Furious: Increasing Rooftop Installation Efficiency Through the Balance of Systems, where he plans to expound on his vision for how both the mounting segment and the solar industry at large are poised to evolve.
With a background in high tech that traces back more than three decades, Maulick sees parallels from which the solar industry can draw – including the value a systems perspective will provide to procurement, system owners, operators and maintainers.
“The state of the solar industry today reminds me of the early days of computing. For example, both industries had to wrestle with the expiration of tax credits. The module, much like the microprocessor, has shifted from a role as the technology driver to more of a commodity component in a more complex overall system,” said Maulick. “We can learn a great deal from these commonalities and the evolution of the high tech industry – namely that product manufacturers must mature to provide complete, valued solutions or lose relevance.”
Maulick continued, “I’m sure it will be a lively discussion during the Solar Summit panel, as we all have our opinions on how to increase system efficiencies and what the future holds. However, if history is any guide, we can bet that an integrated, products and services approach is going to lead in this next wave of solar industry growth. At SunLink, we are driving aggressively toward that new reality.”
Now in its eighth year, the Greentech Media Solar Summit gathers 500+ leaders from across the solar value chain on April 14-16, 2015, in Phoenix, AZ, for data driven sessions and unsurpassed networking opportunities. Powered by the research and economic analysis of the GTM Research team, this year’s agenda includes thought-provoking panels, engaging debates among the industry’s top thought leaders, and an interactive polling session that will give attendees the opportunity to see how their opinion measures up against the experts.
