It’s solar PV show time

PES brings you two great show previews, Solar Power International (SPI) and Energy Storage International (ESI), September 10th to 13th 2017, Las Vegas and European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition (EU PVSEC) September 25th to 29th 2017, Munich Germany. Hopefully we will see you at one of them.

Fusing solar energy and technology for the future

The cost to install solar has dropped by more than 70% since 2010, which has helped make the industry more ubiquitous throughout the world. The United States is no exception. Nearly 260,000 Americans work in solar, more than double the number employees compared to 2012 – at more than 9,000 companies in every U.S. state.

This has led the industry to expand into new markets and deploy thousands of systems nationwide. With nearly 1.4 million solar installations in the U.S., there are projections that the market will hit 2 million installations by 2018, and 4 million by 2022. This has helped the success of North America’s largest solar & energy storage trade show, Solar Power International (SPI) and Energy Storage International (ESI).

This September, over 18,000 energy professionals and 650 exhibitors from more than 110 countries will make Las Vegas their home for three days to experience the largest and fastest growing solar trade show in North America.

SPI is the only solar or storage trade show that has been honored as a Gold 100 show, an award that recognizes the top-100 largest trade shows and an honor SPI has received for the past eight years. As one of the fastest 50 growing trade shows, SPI has ventured into new markets that help connect all things solar – from storage, IoT and beyond.

SPI is powered by leading industry groups, Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) and Smart Electric Power Alliance (SEPA). All proceeds from SPI go right back to the non-profits in order to help strengthen and grow the United States solar economy.

There’s only one solar trade show that gives you the opportunity to collaborate with the entire U.S. solar industry, discover innovations on the show floor from over 600 exhibitors, and create strategies to propel your business state-side.
