SEIA’s Solar Goes Corporate is a forum to discuss how businesses can effectively procure, deploy, and invest in clean energy technologies such as solar and battery storage. This annual event gathers more than 200 leaders from the solar and broader clean energy industries and the business community. Developers, service providers, Fortune 500 companies and mid-market commercial entities will collaboratively explore critical trends, challenges and solutions for expanding commercial and industrial use of clean energy.
From local and state elections to the race for the presidency, the 2020 election has tremendous consequences for the future of energy and climate policy in the United States. With a new administration set to take over in 2021, SEIA recently outlined its vision for clean energy policies that will help solar reach 20% of generation by 2030 and accelerate the transition to a clean energy economy.
You're invited to participate as a stakeholder in the Building a Technically Reliable Interconnection Evolution for Storage (BATRIES) project, which is working toward simplifying the interconnection process for standalone energy storage and solar-plus-storage projects.
The fight for renewable energy and a clean economy does not stop at power plants, but is critical to the upcoming election season and the voter engagement process itself. Join this webinar to learn how you or your company can support voter turnout and positive outcomes for clean energy in November.
The solar industry stands to benefit from a more diverse, robust and resilient workforce as we continue to emerge from COVID19 disruptions and expand our industry’s role as a mainstream part of the American energy sector. Veterans and transitioning service members have the leadership experience and critical thinking skills that are essential in today’s fast-changing world.
SolarAPP+ (Solar Automated Permit Processing) is an online solar permitting tool that will make the process of going solar easier and cheaper for customers, and allow local governments to quickly and safely approve applications. Join this free webinar to see a live demo of the program, hear an update on its development, and learn how you can get involved. Speakers: Jeff Cook, NREL Valerie Anderson, Tesla Karyn Boenker, Sunrun Justin Baca, SEIA Original Air Date:
Join codes & standards professionals the 4th annual SEIA Codes & Standards Symposium! Our experts will provide insight into the transition to new and improved building and energy codes that impact solar installation, identifying key considerations for designers, engineers, marketers, and policy professionals.
This webinar will cover structural-related updates to the 2018 International Building Code (IBC), 2018 International Residential Code (IRC), and referenced structural standard ASCE 7-16; these requirements went into effect this past January and may soon or have been adopted in many jurisdictions. We will introduce PV-specific structural example problems outlined in the new SEAOC Wind Design Manual and demonstrate how to use the provisions in ASCE 7-16.
Part 6 - SEIA Summer Webinar Series: Incorporating Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Justice into the Solar Industry's Political Advocacy
As Americans continue to grapple with a long overdue reckoning on racial injustice and inequality, the solar industry must ensure that the clean energy transition addresses environmental justice concerns and supports communities that have been historically left behind. The goal of this discussion is to increase engagement among solar companies in diversity, equity, inclusion and justice initiatives and to offer thoughts from leaders in our industry about how clean energy policy and racial justice are inextricable.
Solar and storage companies have developed a growing interest in receiving compensation for reactive power in projects across the United States. While reactive power compensation has been available to numerous types of resources for decades, recent improvements in solar and storage technological capabilities, and a 2017 order from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, have combined to turn reactive power into an attractive and achievable revenue opportunity for solar and storage resources- particularly in MISO and PJM.
