Since 2008, Intersolar North America has served as the industry’s first major solar industry event of the year for invaluable information and premier networking opportunities. Sharing a location with ees North America, Intersolar North America’s exhibition and conference are at the cross-section of solar technology, energy storage, e-mobility and smart renewable energy. After a year of uncertainty and political turmoil in the North American renewable energy market, Intersolar North America delivered a bold and optimistic take on the future of solar and storage technologies in 2018. More than 14,000 people were drawn from around 60 countries to the events’ shared location (including SEMICON) to marvel at the 433 exhibitors.
Join us in San Francisco from July 9 to 11, 2019!
Times are tough for renewable energies in the United States. But California is different – and always has been.
The State Public Utilities Commission has estimated that California will probably meet its target of producing 50% of its electricity from renewables ahead of the 2030 deadline. California and New York state lead the nation in energy efficiency, along with setting and meeting clean energy targets to keep utility rates down. These two states alone account for the majority of all U.S. “clean tech” investment.
California’s solar industry now employs more people than old-style utilities. At present, there are two to four times as many jobs in solar, wind, sustainable biomass, efficiency and energy storage than in any fossil-fuel sector you could name.
As Governor Brown, the 2018 Champion of Change Lifetime Achievement Award winner, recently emphasized, “In California, facts and science still matter.” And the figures prove that California is the #1 US Solar Market and is looking to stay firm in this position.
Deployment rates for photovoltaic installations are increasing dramatically around the globe. Which markets will be relevant in the future? What will be the role of photovoltaics in the power grid – and off the grid? PV power plants are also growing in importance worldwide. What are the market’s capacities? Who are the main players?
The Intersolar North America Conference stands for quality, internationality and a variety of panel discussions and conference sessions. This conference guarantees your company a high-level international audience – and is sure to give your company a head start.
For a broader audience, there are several stages on the show floor that direct traffic to content on the exhibition. Joint Forces for Solar, WRISE, IREC and GTM are only a few of the associations and researchers rocking the stage.
