Record Crowds at Solar Power International and Energy Storage International Expo
Over 20,000 attendees saw the latest solar power and energy storage innovations displayed by 700+ exhibitors at the annual Solar Power International (SPI) Expo September 10-13 in Las Vegas. The event, sponsored by SPI and Energy Storage International (ESI), attributed its record-breaking attendance to the world’s increasing desire and need of energy-saving options.
Among the exhibitors was Electro Plastics, Inc./STEP Warmfloor, a US-based inventor and manufacturer of the only low-voltage, flat, homogeneous self-regulating Positive Temperature Coefficient (PTC) heater in the world; electric radiant heating with exclusive, self-regulating Nano Polycarbon technology. Attendees were able to touch and feel the even heat distribution of this energy-saving home/business heating alternative.
Under the umbrella of North American Energy Week, SPI expanded its scope to reflect the growth of energy innovation through the addition of ESI, Hydrogen + Fuel Cells North America and the Smart Energy Microgrid Marketplace.
Over 1,000 international attendees from 80 delegations were in attendance through the U.S. Department of Commerce’s International Buyer Program (IBP), the largest recorded registration through the program. IBP benefits U.S.-based exhibitors by bringing in international delegations to meet with U.S. exhibitors to make connections that lead to export sales and partnerships.
Next year’s global solar event will be at the Anaheim Convention Center, Anaheim, California September 24-27.
