Solarpraxis has wrapped up yet another successful PV Power Plants Conference in Las Vegas

World-class speakers provided knowledge and insight into the successful planning of large-scale PV projects

The Solarpraxis conference PV Power Plants 2010 - USA proved that there is a thirst of knowledge in the US market for information regarding financing and policy for large-scale PV projects. Manufacturers, project developers, utilities, analysts and investors gathered to attend this second Solarpraxis U.S. conference to hear from the event’s featured speakers: Shayle Kann (GTM Research/Greentech Media), Julia Hamm (Solar Electric Power Association), Mark Fillinger (First Solar, Inc.), Greg Sheppard (iSuppli Corporation), Rudy Perez (Southern California Edison), Boris Schubert (Q-Cells SE), Fred M. Greguras (K&L Gates LLP) and many others.

Speakers and panelists discussed the best ways to develop the North American PV Market and addressed issues such as how to make use of different subsidies and government incentives, and what the current bank lending environment like. Attendees were eager to hear more; solar analyst Chris Hiller of Stellar Energy GP, Inc. - a leading California-based solar energy integrator - said, “…the conference was great and very informative…” and that he is already looking forward to next year’s December conference.

Brade Meikle, Chairman of Silverado Power LLC, shared that, “In the emerging industry of Solar PV there is a conference almost every week. My colleagues and I have been to many Solarpraxis events, in both the US and Europe, and they have all been very well managed. The quality of the speakers & panelists is excellent, and as a result these events are attended by senior members of the industry. I found this year's event to be extremely worthwhile and will certainly be attending in 2011.”

A final report on the conference can be found in the January 2010 issue of pv magazine and information regarding future Solarpraxis conferences can be found at
