Focus on Solar Energy
This just in from the Solar Energy Industries Association. . .
MDV-SEIA’s Solar Energy Focus 2012 Conference, Developing and Financing Solar on the East Coast, is returning to Washington, D.C. This year, like last, will bring together hundreds of business leaders, investors, developers, legal experts and key policy makers together in D.C. to discuss and resolve the key issues for the solar industry at the Marriott at Metro Center November 27 and 28.
“More than ever, our Solar Energy Focus 2012 conference will serve industry players and newcomers to better understand today’s opportunities and threats affecting their businesses and constituencies,” said MDV-SEIA Executive Director Mary Ellen Curto.
This year's conference promises to be the most comprehensive and expansive event to date and features a packed schedule, filled with notable speakers and break out discussion sessions. Keynote speakers include former CIA Director and founder of the U.S. Energy Security Council R. James Woolsey, solar visionary and champion, Jigar Shah and former Virginia Governor Tim Kaine (invited).
Solar Energy Focus 2012 will cover opportunities in the Mid-Atlantic, creative financing solutions for SRECs, tax equity, leasing, post-election market scenarios, solar heating and cooling, new technology and industry trends and much more.
“After tremendous growth in the last four years, our industry continues to experience substantial change, particularly in the Mid-Atlantic. With the backdrop of a national election, this is a critical time to stay informed and make connections,” said MDV-SEIA President Rick Peters.
