Intersolar North America plans to welcome approximately 18,000 visitors to the Moscone Center exhibition halls with SEMICON West. Exhibitors from a variety of market segments are represented on the exhibition floor; PV cells, modules and systems, energy storage technologies, balance of system components, mounting and tracking systems, PV production technology and solar heating/cooling technologies will be on display. Many companies from across all exhibition segments, such as SolarWorld Americas, LLC., Advanced Energy, Schletter, Inc., JinkoSolar (U.S.) Inc., ABB Inc., Canadian Solar Inc., Eaton, SCHMID Group, SolarMax USA, Inc., and TMEIC Corporation are returning exhibitors. The growing E-Mobility sector, which combines PV power systems, energy storage and electric vehicles, will feature solar carports from Baja Construction and electric vehicles from BMW at the E-Mobility Special Exhibit on Level 2 (booth 8047).
"Intersolar provides an excellent opportunity for face-to-face discussions with our current customers, as well as to meet new customers and established developers and integrators looking for lowest cost mounting system alternatives," commented Ed Grover, vice president of business development at Schletter, developer of solar mounting system solutions.
"ABB finds Intersolar North America to be a very important show for not only the US market but for the western hemisphere. Due to its highly desirable location in the San Francisco Bay Area, it is an easily accessible venue for the major players in the US and global markets to convene," said Bob Stojanovic, director of solar power in North America for ABB, Inc. "We meet equipment suppliers, developers and EPC's at this event to discuss business across a multitude of topics and levels."
Many exhibitors take advantage of other opportunities to increase brand awareness and drive business growth at Intersolar North America. The Innovation & Application Stage and the electrical energy storage (ees) Forum offer the opportunity for exhibitors to share insights on topics ranging from integrating storage solutions to technology advances and trends. In addition, twelve exhibiting companies will offer technical training workshops with for three NABCEP Continuing Education credits each at the Moscone Center for installers and other solar practitioners.
For example, Solectria Renewables will present on commercial and utility-scale design considerations and Quick Mount PV will explain roofing and fire codes to attendees. Visitors interested in these courses must register online for a $50 fee per workshop. These practical sessions complement a program offered by NAATBatt on energy storage and CALSEIA's Contractor Day convened to sharpen the skills of seasoned and new contractors alike.
Additionally, five Intersolar exhibitors – Eaton, First Solar, Princeton Power Systems, Solaire Generation and Trina Solar – have the distinction of being named finalists for the 2014 Solar Projects in North America AWARD and will deliver presentations on their projects before the AWARD ceremony on Tuesday, July 8th.
