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).
