The future is once again looking bright for solar in the UK with 2019 certain to be a year of great change. Grid-connected capacity is predicted to reach an all-time high, with a strong pipeline of post-subsidy projects; falling product prices and a more favourable policy landscape.
So there’s already plenty to celebrate at Solar & Storage Live 2019; but there’s also the bigger picture to look at as solar rapidly takes it’s place as a key renewable in the energy system of the future.
With changes in the nature of supply and demand, increasing digitisation, the integration of storage, and a move towards a greater penetration of electric vehicles on the grid, our agenda has evolved to cover all the most important opportunities and challenges for those working in the complex and evolving energy landscape.
Solar Power International (SPI) and Energy Storage International (ESI) generates success for energy professionals and the global solar industry. SPI sets the standard for solar events as the fastest growing and largest solar show in North America as recognized by Trade Show Executiveand Trade Show News Network. SPI has also been among the Gold 100 for eight years running and named this year's "Best Use of Technology" and the 2016 "Stickiest Show Floor" by Trade Show Executive for the innovative ways in which attendees stay engaged.
Under the umbrella of North America Smart Energy Week, SPI's expanded scope to reflects the growth of energy innovation through the addition of ESI, Hydrogen + Fuel Cells North America, and the Smart Energy Microgrid Marketplace.
ESI is the largest energy storage conference in North America, featuring over 160 energy storage exhibitors on the show floor, dedicated full conference education, show floor education in Storage Central and an exclusive storage networking event.
