We are in the greatest energy transition of our times. As our economy pivots to clean energy sources, so too must our cultural mindset change in order to fully embrace a circular economy.

It's not enough to merely operate as a renewable energy industry because renewable energy by itself falls short of realizing opportunities for shared benefit and value enhancement. Rather, solar companies should evolve to be sustainable energy companies.

In this webinar, Peter Perrault, Sr. Manager, Circular Economy & Sustainable Solutions at Enel North America, will share how a circular economy model addresses the sustainability needs of the community, planet, and economy.

In this webinar, you will learn about:

  • Mindsets that exist in our culture that may be preventing us from fully embracing a circular economy
  • What role the secondary market plays in realizing sustainability goals
  • Tips for PV professionals to transform your business towards an inclusive circular economy
