North America Smart Energy Week, powered by Smart Electric Power Alliance (SEPA) and Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), is the largest gathering of solar, smart energy, microgrids, energy storage, hydrogen fuel cell professionals, EVs, and wind professionals in North America. Anchored by the flagship event, Solar Power International, North America Smart Energy Week brings together an extensive alliance of renewable energy leaders for four days of networking, education, and innovation that moves the industry forward. The event has diversified to include Energy Storage International, the Smart Energy Marketplace + Microgrid, Hydrogen + Fuel Cells International. Unlike other solar industry events, all proceeds support the expansion of the U.S. solar market through SEIA and SEPA’s year-round research and education activities, as well as SEIA’s advocacy efforts.

Solar Power International (SPI) is the largest, fastest growing and most awarded solar trade show in North America.  The event draws 19,000 attendees and 700 exhibitors from around the world. With its breadth of industry experts sharing their knowledge and exhibitions from the industry’s pacemakers, SPI is the leader among solar trade shows.

Energy Storage International (ESI) paves the way for greater integration between the energy storage and renewable energy markets. As the largest energy storage event in North America, ESI features over 250 exhibitors and 12,000 attendees interested in energy storage technology, three full days of education investigating policy advances, market forecasts, new technology and applications, as well as additional relevant, timely industry-developed content designed to grow the storage market.

Everything comes together in the Smart Energy Microgrid Marketplace, where the entire solar, energy storage, hydrogen fuel cells, distributed wind, and smart energy microgrid landscapes will be on display. The marketplace features a fully-functioning “live” microgrid, power conversion equipment, energy management systems, building and home smart energy products, electric vehicle charging stations, energy storage systems, and solar energy products.

For the second year in a row, hydrogen and fuel cells technology will be on the agenda at SPI, ESI, and North America Smart Energy Week. Hydrogen + Fuel Cells International is where attendees can profit from several synergy effects between the solar and energy storage industries that will be present in Salt Lake City.
