CSP TODAY USA - Latest Program and Keynote Speaker Announced

CSP Today is delighted to announce the release of the latest program for CSP TODAY USA 2011 (June 29-30, Las Vegas)

CSP Today is also glad to report that Sara Moffat Energy and Public Lands Regional Representative for U.S. Senator Harry Reid and Lit Governor K. Krolicki, Lieutenant Governor of Nevada will be both opening the event with a welcome keynote address.

The confirmation of a keynote speaker of this caliber serves to cement CSP TODAY USA 2011 as the premier event for the CSP industry in the USA. With 400 delegates already set to attend, the event this year has innovative new features to ensure that attendees can make the most of the full delegate list confirmed to attend.

It is widely recognized that with the level of regulatory support and investment in North America, and European FiTs under threat, the US industry is key to CSP's overall development. At CSP TODAY USA delegates will be debating and discussing the issues that matter for the entire industry, with in-depth sessions focusing on:

The future of CSP in the USA - Understand the challenges and ensure you take advantage of the great opportunities for CSP in the years ahead
Compete with PV - Discover effective and practical solutions to enable the CSP industry to compete with PV's claims for power for $1/watt
Dispatchability and its value for the grid - Understand the real value of dispatchable power for utility and grid operations and take advantage of concentrated solar thermal's USP
Build your CSP roadmap for success - Listen to exclusive case studies from Ivanpah, Crescent Dunes and Solana and take away essential knowledge and insight into permitting, financing and commissioning

The brand-new brochure, with up-to-date speakers, sponsors, exhibitors and agenda can be downloaded here: http://www.csptoday.com/usa/conference-brochure.shtml

Along with these focused conference sessions throughout two days, a new ‘Show and Tell' session aims to charter the progress of the CSP industry both in the US and worldwide, with a detailed look at the CSP Today World Map 2011 and CSP Today USA Map, with comprehensive case studies given along the way with the Developers in charge of each project.

Plus, on the evening of June 28, the CSP Today Awards will take place at the conference venue in Las Vegas. These industry-leading accolades are generating unprecedented interest, with nominees across the entire value chain campaigning for votes from their peers across the industry. Awards such as ‘Commercialized Technology Innovation of the Year', ‘EPC Contractor of the Year' and ‘Most Effective Environmental Stewardship of the Year' serve to recognize the exceptional progress of the US industry over the last decade, and more specifically the companies and people that have made this progress possible.

CSP Today's recent European conference (in Sevilla, November 2010) attracted 650 top solar energy professionals and this event aims to bring together the US market to discuss how to power the industry forward at this critical time.
