The latest episode of the Solar Media Podcast, sponsored by Honeywell, is now available to stream featuring discussion around recent scrutiny on solar supply chains.

With the US government taking action to block imports of polysilicon and products using polysilicon from a number of providers, further legislative movement in the US Senate and the UK government being urged to consider similar moves, Liam Stoker and Andy Colthorpe discuss the likely impacts on the global solar value chain.

Meanwhile there’s news of a wealth of activity in long-duration energy storage technologies and analysis on recent reports which indicate that while the renewables sector is growing quickly, it’s not fast enough to reach net zero targets worldwide.
