New Decade, New Codes

SEIA Codes & Standards Symposium
Monday, September 14
Co-located with SPI, ESI, and North America Smart Energy Week
Hilton Anaheim - Pacific A

This year 2020 marks the implementation of new and improved building and energy codes that impact solar installation. Our experts will provide insight into the transition to these newer codes, identifying key considerations for designers, engineers, marketers, and policy professionals.

Solar system design and installation is regulated by a complex and interconnected system of codes and product standards that vary by geography. The 4th annual SEIA Codes & Standards Symposium will provide actionable guidance that enables solar firms to successfully navigate the codes environment, evaluate opportunities for market growth, and gain an advantage in marketing products and services to customers.

New to this year’s program will be the addition of three foundational webinars that will cover the basics and updates to key topic areas – electrical and PV hazard control, structural and fire, and energy storage.  These webinars will be held in June, July and August leading up to the in-person event in September.

Attendees will be briefed on key elements of brand-new codes & standards, including the 2017 National Electrical Code, the 2018 International Building, Fire and related codes, and the 2019 California Building Standards Code. You’ll also learn what’s on the horizon for the next generation of solar codes and standards, shaping the future of solar regulations. Staying informed of these developments is critical to give your company a competitive advantage in a crowded marketplace.
