In this final episode of the Solar Media Podcast for 2020, Liam Stoker and Andy Colthorpe reflect on the biggest stories of the year and gaze into their crystal balls for 2021.

We reflect on how capacity expansion announcements and new technologies took the upstream solar sector into a new era, how the net zero movement spread and, yes, what impact the COVID-19 pandemic had on the industry supply chain. In energy storage, we discuss why California was rarely out of the headlines, some of the world's biggest projects and a 'mysterious' new contender in the long-duration space. 

There’s also time to reflect on some of the lighter stories of 2020, and both Liam and Andy provide their predictions for 2021.
