Intersolar North America Strengthens Partnership with CALSEIA

2618

As Intersolar North America nears, the organization announces an expanded collaboration with CALSEIA. CALSEIA’s expertise as one of the nation’s oldest solar energy associations located in the heart of the largest solar U.S. market has played a critical role in Intersolar North America’s success.

 

Intersolar North America is coming up! The organizers say it’s the most well-attended industry exhibition and conference in North America for solar professionals.

This year the organization is building on its existing partnerships. Intersolar North America just announced it has formed a new, long-term agreement with valued partner California Solar Energy Industries Association (CALSEIA). Together, the partners will work to strengthen supportive solar policies in California, and further the state’s solar market through joint campaigns and programs.

CALSEIA’s expertise, as one of the nation’s oldest solar energy associations located in the heart of the largest solar U.S. market, has played a critical role in Intersolar North America’s success. With more than 4.1 MW, California ranks first in the country in installed solar capacity and is home to more than 1,670 solar companies, employing 43,700 solar professionals.

“Intersolar North America is California’s premier solar conference and trade show…. From the workshops to the networking events, Intersolar North America is the place to be for the U.S. solar industry,” said Bernadette Del Chiaro, Executive Director of CALSEIA, in a statement.

“Intersolar supports the North American solar industry yesterday, today and tomorrow,” said Markus Elsasser, CEO of Solar Promotion International GmbH, an organizer of Intersolar North America.

The partners will expand the scope of their collaboration this year and introduce new programs at the 2014 show in addition to continuing previous ones:  

  • CALSEIA and Intersolar will host the first-ever Contractor Day, a daylong workshop that will provide installation information for both established and new solar PV and thermal contractors.

  • For the first time ever, Intersolar will present the Intersolar Champion of Change AWARD to an outstanding personality committed to development of renewable energy at the national or international level. The Champion of Change AWARD is hosted by Intersolar, in close partnership with CALSEIA. All attendees are invited to attend the AWARD Ceremony on Tuesday, July 8 at 3 PM at the Innovation & Application Stage on Level 3 of Moscone West.

  • Intersolar and CALSEIA have historically collaborated on the popular Solar Summerfest, the premiere networking event for approximately 2,000 exhibitors, visitors, and conference attendees. Intersolar proudly supports the Solar Summerfest, a 100% fundraiser benefiting CALSEIA’s activities to strengthen the Californian solar industry.
