The Asia Factor

Asia is increasingly playing a role in the development of renewables world-wide. From solar modules to wind turbines and geothermal projects to next-generation batteries, the region is one of the most important for clean energy. Today, Asian countries are having a major impact on how other markets, like the U.S., grow as well.

In this podcast, we’ll look at the role of China and Korea in the international market for renewables.

Mike Miskovsky, general manager of the U.S. solar division for Canadian Solar, talks about why the company’s Chinese-made solar products still represent the highest degree of quality and performance. He’ll also discuss the company’s continued effort to brand itself inside the U.S.

Do Woon Lee, a cleantech journalist with the Seoul Daily News in South Korea, discusses the factors contributing the the country’s push to develop clean, domestic sources of energy. He’ll also look at what role the Koreans will play in the international community as a bridge between developing and developed countries.
