Newsletter November 2020

Discover new opportunities for digital networking

The next six months will offer a series of online solar conferences and fairs, with new opportunities to acquire knowledge, debate virtually, enlarge your network and do business – and all of it without spending time and money on travelling. 

For example, the International Solar Energy Society is inviting solar energy advocates from the worlds of research, industry, NGOs and policy to celebrate a Century of Solar with a special 
50th Anniversary Virtual Conference, the Solar World Congress at 50. On 3 and 4 December, you will be able to choose from a series of six 90-minute panel sessions covering a wide variety of solar energy topics. They will later be followed by three webinars in 2021. Not only is conference registration for free, but a recording of the event will be available to everyone who registered. Online registration will start mid November.

Another digital-only event to be held in the next half year is ISH 2021, one of the world’s largest fairs on HVAC and water technology. In 2019, it attracted over 190,000 visitors. A virtual matchmaking and product presentation platform will be up several weeks prior to the event so exhibitors can go ahead and showcase their latest offerings as well as introduce their virtual sales team and customers can book appointments for the face-to-face week that will take place from 22 to 26 March. The organisers of the fair have also promised that the platform will remain accessible until December 2022.

“Use mandates to boost established markets, but not to build up new ones”

Ten years after Hawaii’s Solar Hot Water Mandate was issued the Hawaii Solar Energy Association won a lawsuit to weed out a fatal flaw of the regulation that required all new single-family homes to install a solar water heater since 2010 unless one of four variances can be met.
