Welcome to Chet’s Desk

SES 21 USA is pleased to introduce this space as a forum for the interchange of comments, ideas, trends, and technical information surrounding the renewable energy and the PV solar industry.  

We are unabashed advocates of the PV solar industry.  But we do not view renewable energy as an all or nothing proposition.  The social, economic, national security, and environmental issues surrounding energy policies and technologies are immense and the stakes are high.

We advocate open discussion and reasonable policy considerations that address the private and social costs of energy consumption and production and treat all technologies on an equal basis.  That’s fair enough.  With this in mind, we seek market driven solutions. 

We do not believe the world stage will turn to 100% renewable energy at any time soon.  Definitions are confusing, and the issues are too staggering to be lost to ideology.  We envision a mixed portfolio of energy solutions and a variety of renewable technologies.  20% PV by 2050 is an achievable goal.  We cannot stand alone. 

Discovery and invention are alive, and tomorrow’s energy solutions undoubtedly are yet to be discovered.  That’s a comforting thought.  So no roadblocks to innovation please; let’s strive to provide our successors with a cleaner and more sustainable future. 

We have divided our blog into three basic sections: (i) Economics, Policy, and Politics, (ii) Markets and Products, and (iii) Technology.  We welcome your readership and participation.  So please share your thoughts and knowledge with all of us. 


Chet Boortz, CEO
