Contrary to the report, I believe green energy will do well long-term. Today, electric energy is a commodity, therefore a new method of energy production has to be competitive with the old methods. Otherwise, it will not be widely adopted by businesses and consumers. As I wrote before, there are good technologies and business models available to companies that want to deploy solar panels in residential areas. A real breakthrough is still ahead of us, but we won't achieve it unless we drop the old thinking that green energy cannot become competitive without huge government subsidies.
