Bill Clinton to headline Solar Power International 2012

Former US president Bill Clinton is to be keynote speaker at Solar Power International this September in Orlando, Florida. The solar energy conference and exhibition is presented by the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) and the Solar Electric Power Association (SEPA).

"President Clinton's global perspective and stature are sure to motivate and inspire our exhibitors and attendees," said Julia Hamm, president and CEO of SEPA. "We are honoured to present the former President as our keynote speaker and believe that his understanding of the need to explore alternative energy will be a message that resonates with all."

"Having President Clinton keynote Solar Power International presents a fantastic opportunity for solar energy professionals attending in Orlando," said Rhone Resch, president and CEO of SEIA. "His leadership and commitment to expanding the use of solar energy – both in the US and in the developing world -- makes him one of our industry's strongest advocates. We are honoured to welcome President Clinton to Orlando and to hear his vision on elevating solar to the next level."

Last month, President Clinton visted Haiti as part of the William J. Clinton Foundation to build up Haiti’s green energy structure.

    Looking back, 2014 was a year of convalescence for a PV industry still battered and bruised from a period of ferocious competition. End-market demand continued apace, with analysts towards the end of 2014 predicting the year would see between around 45 and 50GW of deployment. That has begun to feed through to the supplier end of the market, with all the main manufacturers announcing capacity expansions in 2015 and further ahead.

    Although the past few years have proved extremely testing for PV equipment manufacturers, falling module prices have driven solar end-market demand to previously unseen levels. That demand is now starting to be felt by manufacturers, to the extent that leading companies are starting to talk about serious capacity expansions later this year and into 2015. This means that the next 12 months will be a critical period if companies throughout the supply chain are to take full advantage of the PV industry’s next growth phase.
