The Solar Electric Power Association (SEPA) and Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) have formed a jointly owned legal entity: Solar Energy Trade Shows LLC. This joint effort will produce a collection of solar energy events designed to support the ongoing expansion of the solar energy industry in the U.S.

Solar Energy Trade Shows will build upon SEPA and SEIA’s background in the solar events industry. “Solar Energy Trade Shows is a reflection of the strength of SEPA and SEIA as co-producers of B2B events like Solar Power International, North America’s largest and most-watched B2B solar trade event,” said Julia Hamm, executive director of SEPA.

“With Solar Power International attracting more than 20,000 people from 90 countries, we felt it was the right time to create a new entity to produce this and other cutting-edge B2B events,” said Rhone Resch, president and CEO of SEIA. “This collaboration yields events targeted to the needs of the solar industry and allows SEPA and SEIA to focus on our separate but complementary missions to expand the U.S. solar energy market.”

The joint entity will also continue both associations’ tradition of inviting solar business leaders to weigh in on event programming, governed by a board of managers comprising of leadership from both SEPA and SEIA.

“The Solar Energy Trade Shows LLC is an extension of SEPA’s educational mission, bridging the gap between electric utilities and the solar industry,” said Alex Kim, SEPA Board Member and Co-Chair of the new entity’s Board of Managers.

The first Solar Energy Trade Shows have already been announced as; PV America 2010, April 8-10 at the Washington DC Convention Center, and Solar Power International 2010, October 12-14 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

Both associations will continue to invest event proceeds toward the growth of the U.S. solar industry.

The demand for rooftop solar PV is soaring, driven by falling costs of the technology against energy crises that are gripping countries globally. But while an increasing number of households turn to solar to generate their own electricity, there is now a need for more specialist equipment, technologies and services to ensure the solar transition can reach as many customers as possible. Delivering these is now a major challenge for rooftop solar installers. This webinar will analyse the characteristics of the rooftop solar market, discussing how the products, logistics, installation and servicing of solar systems has evolved in line with consumer demands.
