Las Vegas (January 24, 2013) – Exhibitor registration is now open for the 2013 GEA Geothermal Energy Expo, to be held September 29 – October 2 at the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. Hosted by the Geothermal Energy Association (GEA), the Expo is the world's largest gathering of the geothermal industry, and the annually sold-out show provides a unique opportunity for exhibitors to showcase their projects, equipment, services and state of the art technology to the geothermal community.

"Each year, the GEA Expo showcases the tireless innovation and ingenuity of the geothermal industry," said Kathy Kent, Senior Director of Events & Marketing, Geothermal Energy Association. "We're looking forward to seeing even more new ideas and technological advancements in Las Vegas, as these companies are guiding America towards a clean energy future."

The 2012 Expo drew more than 2,000 attendees from 20 different countries to Reno, with the sold out Expo Hall featuring 166 exhibitors from 28 different states and 10 different countries. Exhibitors from 2012 included leading geothermal companies such as Ormat Technologies, Siemens, Schlumberger, Mitsubishi Power Systems, Toshiba International Corporation, as well as a number of U.S. government and international agencies.

As one of the country's geothermal leaders, Nevada is a fitting host for back-to-back GEA Expos. The Silver State continues to pave the way for geothermal development, with a staggering 59 projects in development. Nevada also has more installed geothermal capacity, 510 MW, than any other state besides California.

SolarEdge Technologies - Solar Inverters, Power Optimizers and PV Monitoring

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power conversion architecture to achieve superior solar power harvesting and best-in-class reliability. The fixed-voltage technology ensures the solar inverter is always working at its optimal input voltage over a wider range of string lengths and regardless of environmental conditions. A proprietary data monitoring receiver has been integrated into the inverter and aggregates the power optimizer performance data from each PV module. This data can be transmitted to the web and accessed via the SolarEdge Monitoring Portal for performance analysis, fault detection and troubleshooting of PV systems.
