Nominations for the SEA Awards for Excellence and Innovation 2011 close at 5:00pm on Monday, 28 February 2011.

Winners will receive their awards during the Energising South East Asia Conference and Exhibition on the 24th March 2011 at the Perth Convention Exhibition Centre.

Sponsorship opportunities remain available in some of the award categories.

The conference, to be held in Perth, Western Australia 23-26 March 2011, is an international conference dealing with Australian and SE Asian markets and is proving to be of interest to businesses across Australia as exhibitors - with the number of exhibitors we already have we expect it be one of the largest sustainable energy expos ever held in Australia.

The location of this expo in Western Australia targets Perth's participation in the World Energy Cities Partnership (WECP), a collaboration of 16 "energy cities" around the world.

Local company Swan Energy, one of Australia's leading providers of large scale, commercial solar power stations, has backed the Sustainable Energy Association of Australia's event to become the Platinum Sponsor of the expo.

Other enterprises are also offering substantial support with City of Perth, Horizon Power, Hyundai Heavy Industries and UNLTD Energy, generously supporting as Gold Sponsors.

Silver Sponsors of the event are Greensense, SMA and Sunpower, and Bronze Sponsors are HAC the Western Australian Government through the Office of Energy.

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
