We’d like to thank all visitors, speakers, exhibitors and partners that helped make Intersolar and ees North America 2018 such a success. We leave San Francisco inspired and invigorated. From the Opening Ceremony and keynote speeches to the many new products on the exhibition floor, we were excited to hear and see the many ways companies and individuals are advancing the solar and storage industries. Make sure to mark your calendars for next year’s events, July 9 - 11, 2019 in San Francisco.
This year marked the debut of the Power2Drive conference track, part of ees North America. The four sessions examined how the electrification of transportation will impact the grid, and demonstrated the future potential of emobility. Next year, Intersolar and ees North America will welcome a special exhibit to the annual event called Power2Drive, focused on charging infrastructure, EV batteries and electric vehicles. Additional Power2Drive conference tracks in 2019 will fit perfectly alongside the already popular solar and energy storage-focused programming. The new Power2Drive special exhibit will showcase breakthrough EV components, charging technologies and traction batteries, and provide attendees with the insight needed to enter this rapidly growing market.
We’d also like to extend our gratitude to all attendees who participate in special fundraising events this year. We’re proud of the support that all attendees provided for California Solar + Storage Association (CALSSA), the primary supporter of Intersolar and ees North America, through attendance at 2018’s Summerfest fundraiser. All proceeds from this event were donated to CALSSA to fuel their continued solar advocacy efforts across California. Finally, we extend a big “thank you” to all who participated in the many solar tours that took place as a part of this year’s special event series. Each of these tours was organized by event partner Norcal Solar and ticket proceeds were donated to the organization to further solar awareness.
