SPI 2014 - Solar Power International to Kick Off Monday

The conference includes four days of educational sessions, workshops, general sessions and special events, as well as hundreds of exhibits from throughout the solar value chain.

WASHINGTON, DC – Solar Power International (SPI), the solar industry's most respected, comprehensive educational conference and product exhibition, will kick off Monday evening at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, and run through Thursday.


The conference includes four days of educational sessions, workshops, general sessions and special events, as well as hundreds of exhibits from throughout the solar value chain.

U.S. Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz will keynote the general session on Wednesday.

In addition, SPI will also offer its first dedicated symposium on the solar heating and cooling (SHC) sector, and for the second year in a row, SPI is partnering with Clean Energy Trust (CET) to present the tremendously success Start Up Alley, showcasing the best and the brightest in new solar companies.

More than 15,000 solar professionals are expected to attend SPI 2014.

"SPI is absolutely the best opportunity of the year to connect with your colleagues and industry leaders – to find out what's going on in solar and to get your company in front of potential clients and customers," said Rhone Resch, president and CEO of the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), which presents SPI in conjunction with the Solar Electricity Power Association (SEPA).

Today, the U.S. solar energy industry pumps more than $15 billion a year into the economy, while employing 143,000 Americans nationwide and helping to fight pollution.

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.
