North America’s largest solar conference and exhibition, Solar Power International (SPI), held September 12-15 in Las Vegas, exceeded the anticipated attendance of 15,000 with over 18,000 attendees visiting 650 exhibitors. Powered by the Solar Power Industries Association (SEIA), SPI’s growth is due in large part with the success of the solar market integrating with the “smart” market.
A first-of-its-kind live microgrid, Smart Energy Microgrid Pavilion, debuted at the event, and was fully powered for the four-day event by solar power. It showed attendees how a variety of products can work together to enhance efficiency.
Among the exhibitors was STEP Warmfloor, presenting their unique 24V DC heating elements which was connected directly to the DC microgrid.
The attending energy professionals, many of whom will become key integrators and suppliers of smart home and business goods and services, expect nearly $6 trillion will be spent on smart devices by 2020.
