Solar 2010 ascent has provided a boost to many within the industry but some fear that too much of the growth can be attributed to government subsidy programs. If subsidy programs taper off, the gains in volume may not be able to offset the revenue drops. Visit to see how companies in this industry have grown over the past years and how they are expected to perform in the future.

While solar dominated the alternative energy headlines for much of the year, smart grid technology is likely to lead the way in 2011. The UK and China have already begun plans to begin converting some cities to smart grid. The massive infrastructure overhaul necessary for even the conversion of a small city could lead to significant growth for energy equipment manufacturers.

Overall, the accelerating shift towards energy sources like solar and smart grid is causing spikes in technology and equipment necessary for its implementation. From an investor's perspective, speculation over the extent to which government subsidies plays a role is somewhat concerning. The outlook for companies already capable of manufacturing the infrastructure equipment is positive moving into 2011.
