Solar+ Manufacturing Summit

Event Detail

The Solar+ Manufacturing Summit will bring together leaders in manufacturing to discuss pathways and policies for building a strong domestic supply chain for solar and other clean energy technologies. Featuring experts from industry, federal and state government, the academic community, and research institutions, the Summit will serve as an incubator for ideas to increase manufacturing for solar products and adjacent technologies in the U.S. Attendees will hear best practices from representatives of other industries with strong domestic manufacturing, and contribute to conversations about the right policy frameworks to encourage investment in new manufacturing facilities. Don’t miss this first-of-its-kind event to help SEIA and the industry develop this key component of the Solar+ Vision, and spur the necessary investments in domestic manufacturing to support our goal of reaching 20% of electricity generation by 2030.
