BrightSource's Desmond says Ivanpah facility a model for future projects
How does the expansion of distributed generation in the United States impact large-scale solar project investments? During today's OnPoint, Joseph Desmond, senior vice president of marketing and government affairs at BrightSource Energy, discusses opportunities for future investments in solar technology on the heels of last month's Ivanpah solar facility opening. BrightSource is an equity investor in Ivanpah. Desmond also talks about the importance of Department of Energy loan guarantees for Ivanpah -- and future projects his company is considering.
