Solar Power International Annual Convention Returns to Las Vegas
Over 18,000 attendees are expected to attend Solar Power International at Mandalay Bay Convention Center, Las Vegas for the four day event September 10-13. The two renowned solar leaders – Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) and Smart Electric Power Alliance (SEPA) promise to fill the days with incredible innovation and collaboration among many cross-sections of the rapidly expanding solar industry.
This year, the Smart Energy Microgrid Marketplace will be right on the show floor (instead of outside as last year). It will feature a fully-functioning microgrid, energy management systems, automation products, electric vehicle charging stations, energy storage providers and solar panel manufacturers – all working toward the connection between solar power and smart products.
Nevada is a great state to tout solar innovation: it ranks fourth in the country in solar electric capacity and has 83 solar companies employing 8,371 people.
