Countries such as China, Germany, Spain, and the United States (U.S.) have some of the largest solar resources all over the world. There are two key ways to harness solar energy: photovoltaic (PV) and concentrated solar power (CSP). Developed and developing countries across the globe are strongly promoting solar as an alternative to conventional energy sources and are hence positively contributing to the market growth. Global electricity demand is increased considerably owing to economic development and population expansion. Improving standards of living and infrastructure development are creating a huge demand for electricity generation. According to a report from Fortune Business Insights, this is expected to drive the solar power market growth during the forecast period. The report projected that the global solar power market is expected to grow from $184.03 billion in 2021 to $293.18 billion in 2028 at a CAGR of 6.9% in forecast period 2021-2028. The report said: “Growing Investments in Solar Energy to Fuel the Market Due to environmental regulations, several companies are installing renewable energy plants.

(the “Company” or “First Tellurium”) CEO Tyrone Docherty said in a recent article published by S&P Global Market Intelligence,“There’s going to be a supply crunch, no question about it.”
The article outlines the demand for solar panels and the American government’s wish to become less reliant on China for both finished products and raw materials.

First Solar is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of solar panels with a market cap of nearly USD 12 billion and trades on the NASDAQ market.
First Solar, held out as a flag ship company by the Biden administration, relies heavily on tellurium for the construction of its solar panels. It is anticipated that First Solar’s expansion plans will require 70% more tellurium than was produced globally last year. First Tellurium was conceived to meet the rising tellurium demand locally.

Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ: TSLA) recently announced that in the fourth quarter, we achieved production of more than 305,000 vehicles and deliveries of over 308,000 vehicles. In 2021, we delivered over 936,000 vehicles.
Thank you to all of our customers, employees, suppliers, shareholders and supporters who helped us achieve a great year.
Our net income and cash flow results will be announced along with the rest of our financial performance when we announce Q4 earnings.

Final numbers could vary by up to 0.5% or more. Tesla vehicle deliveries represent only one measure of the company’s financial performance and should not be relied on as an indicator of quarterly financial results, which depend on a variety of factors, including the cost of sales, foreign exchange movements and mix of directly leased vehicles.
