U.S. Election results encourage North America to continue expansion of its Renewable Energy Portfolio and welcome the Fourth U.S. Solarpraxis PV Power Plants Conference


BERLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Solarpraxis AG, one of the leading organizers of conferences in the renewable energy sector, will host its fourth annual conference focusing exclusively on large-scale solar power plants on November 28 & 29 in Phoenix, Arizona. The conference will provide project developers and decision makers with essential technical and financial information on the following topics: smart grid, LCOE, utility-interactive control, BOS, quality assessment, bankability, plant operation, energy storage, data management, inverters, project restructuring and community solar. These essential issues will be covered by thought leaders from companies such as First Solar, SEPA, E.ON, PG&E, Gestamp, Chevron, UL and many others. Greg Stanton, the Mayor of Phoenix, will open the program which will also include a series of sessions called ‘Learning Excursions,’ and feature industry experts such as John Balfour, John Parsons (Clean Power Group) and Kent James of Martifer, all providing vital insight.

With the election behind us, it is time to acknowledge the rapid development of the North American PV market and the fact that the U.S. solar industry has grown over 13.2 percent over the last year (according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics). All of this demonstrates that the future of the PV market in the Americas is bright, and will remain at the forefront with continued strategic efforts and the knowledge of other solar markets.

In addition to the conference, on November 27th Solarpraxis will host a golfing tournament to increase networking in the relaxed environment of the putting green.
