About RE+ Events
Presented by the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) and Smart Electric Power Alliance (SEPA), RE+ Events strives to keep the industry moving forward by offering cutting-edge events centered around the trends, technology, and research that power the industry.
Unlike other solar industry events, all proceeds support the expansion of the US solar energy market through SEIA’s and SEPA’s year-round research and education activities, as well as SEIA’s advocacy efforts.
Commitment to Collaboration
The success of this event, and all RE+ Events, is heavily driven by the two non-profit, membership organizations behind it. The partnership between SEPA and SEIA, through their joint ownership of RE+ Events, has resulted in the creation of a robust suite of business and education opportunities for the solar industry. RE+ Events organizers and speakers will strive to create a welcoming, collaborative environment for all attendees and stakeholders. At times, debatable issues are discussed at RE+ Events. These debates make the industry stronger and facilitate the healthy exchange of ideas in a collegial setting. All RE+ Events speakers will strive to present balanced perspectives on contentious issues in a professional, constructive manner.
Celebrating its 43rd anniversary in 2017, the Solar Energy Industries Association® is the national trade association of the U.S. solar energy industry, which now employs more than 260,000 Americans. Through advocacy and education, SEIA® is building a strong solar industry to power America. SEIA works with its 1,000 member companies to build jobs and diversity, champion the use of cost-competitive solar in America, remove market barriers and educate the public on the benefits of solar energy.
