The Technical Symposium

Call for Abstracts has Closed

Abstracts are currently under review - our preliminary agenda will be released in July.

The Technical Symposium is a brand new program at SPI, which will offer professionals from the academic, R&D, technical and scientific disciplines in photovoltaics, energy storage and ‘smart’ energy the opportunity to submit abstracts for peer review, presentation and discussion, and publication at the largest gathering of the solar community in North America.

As solar, storage, and smart energy continue to mature, we must incorporate the knowledge, experience, and expertise of the best and brightest minds advancing our profession. This is why we created a three-day technical symposium built on the tenants of a traditional scientific program. SPI is already the event for business and policy thought leaders – let’s make it the event for the innovators working behind the scenes as well!

The call for abstracts and reviewers is now closed. Submissions and their peer review will form the foundation of the presented content at the symposium. We will be accepting submissions in the following technical subject matter areas: photovoltaics, storage, and smart energy technologies. Preference will be given to submissions that explore novel technologies, concepts, and research with rigor and depth.
