We need your expertise!

We are looking for industry knowledge leaders that want to help shape North America’s largest energy event and to give back to the renewable energy industry.  Submit an interactive workshop idea for SPI, ESI, and North America Smart Energy Week, taking place September 23-26, 2019 in Salt Lake City, UT.

Workshops at Solar Power International (SPI) and Energy Storage International (ESI) during North America Smart Energy Week are a great way for attendees to get additional education. These interactive sessions are presented in half or full-day segments and dig deeper into their subject matter. Workshop leaders should be ready to engage attendees in a more intimate and conversational learning environment.

As the largest energy event in North America, this exceptional event provides you the chance to participate in premier education at this business-to-business event for professionals in solar, energy storage, and smart energy fields. No other event provides the opportunities for collaboration, access to experts, and innovative information needed for success.

Participants that have their workshops accepted will receive:

  • Complimentary SPI/ESI registration for up to 4 course faculty per 4-hour session
  • A modest honorarium is provided for accepted workshop organizers
  • Complimentary printing of all course materials up to a maximum of $500, if submitted 30-days prior to the event
  • The opportunity to present your leadership skills and knowledge to a professional and engaged energy audience

The deadline to submit your abstract is March 15.

SEIA and SEPA are committed to building a diverse and inclusive industry, and we strongly encourage submissions from women, people of color, and underrepresented groups in the solar industry.
