Community Engagement Lounge

If one of your goals at SPI, ESI, and North America Smart Energy Week is to meet new people, join us in the Community Lounge during the show to connect with other attendees, learn about exciting new diversity and inclusion initiatives in the renewable industry, and dive deeper into education session topics in small group Q&A discussions with featured speakers. You can also use this space to organize impromptu meetings, share valuable content, or just relax and recharge during the busy week.

Bring your business cards and be prepared to talk about yourself, your work, and your interests, while also gaining new insights into the future of the industry and networking with others as excited about what’s ahead as you are!
