This is the big one for solar, the first big entrance of perovskite into production!! The solar cost curve is about to collapse by an order of magnitude over the next five years. That will make it far cheaper than any fossil fuel for stationary electric production. However, without batteries or an advanced distribution network fossil fuels will still be required for baseline and mobile electric production. I expect the battery cost curve to collapse in the early 20’s as the Gigafactory and its competitors come to full production.
