The US solar policy landscape is shifting at breakneck speed, with new incentives and trade tariffs promising to alter the shape of the industry for the coming decade. Luckily Andy Colthorpe and Liam Stoker are here to decipher the changes in the September 2021 episode of the Solar Media Podcast.

There’s also talk of an increasing flow of investment and M&A deals in the energy storage space, while Liam and Andy also explore recent power price volatility that has skyrocketed across much of Europe of late.
