This exchange establishes concerns that should be addressed by your research. As you look the IPAC partnership with China you will find that much of the current solar energy product is made and used in that country and throughout Asia. Such product technology has not come solely from other countries due to the exceptional research facilities in China. Take time to review global alternative energy development and you will find two major Asian contributions, 1) funding of global research, and 2) funding of advanced technology commercialization in Asia, Europe and North America.
Adding a relationship with our national labs including LLNL, LBL, PNL and NREL is a strategic move that invites such global capital to fund commercialization close to markets, in this case, USAmerica and Canada. The challenge in USAmerica is to prosper alternative energy markets to warrant funding such domestic production and installation.
This should be highly newsworthy follow-on journalism for your reporting.
Thank you for this story,
