Optimizing the Clean-Tech Manufacturing Mix

As demand for renewable energy and clean technologies grows, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) have the opportunity to create new revenue streams in these markets. Control systems are a critical part of clean technologies � yet they are not the core focus for clean tech OEMs, who need solutions to design and manufacture control systems with high quality, efficiency, and low risk.

This paper will consider the unique characteristics of the renewable energy and clean-tech sectors and explore how a smartly optimized electronics manufacturing outsourcing model can help OEMs accelerate their timeto-market and support their cost-per-kilowatt reduction goals.
