The Solar Engineering & Manufacturing Association (SEMA) held a successful meeting on Wednesday, September 22, 2010 at Flextronics Inc.'s campus in Milpitas, CA. Ms. Paula Mints of Navigant Consulting gave an extensive assessment of the current status of the solar power industry, outlining key successes and challenges. The drive to reduce costs, understanding supply and demand forecasts, and highlighting certain reliability issues all were included in her presentation on addressing the challenges and opportunities in the industry.


Also at the meeting, Matthew Holzmann, President, and Jasbir Bath, Vice President, outlined numerous key organizational milestones achieved by SEMA. The Association has made significant progress in the development of its technical program, including a conference to be held in February 2011 in California's Bay Area.

With a rising demand for more data and information on long-term reliability of solar modules and inspection standards, the organization already has received a great deal of excellent input for subject programs for the technical conference, including reliability of solar modules and the development of solar educational courses, and is confident that it will have a strong technical program for the conference that will benefit the solar industry greatly.
