Our annual 3iAwards ceremony, a special solar codes and safey forum, and three well-timed regulatory update sessions – that’s a very busy three days next month at Intersolar North America 2017. Here are details. See you in San Francisco!
Solar Codes & Safety Forum
We’re excited to offer a half-day training session July 12th in conjunction with Intersolar, one in a series of national forums on the latest electric and fire codes important to solar safety. Presented in partnership with the International Code Council’s Solar Rating & Certification Corporation (ICC-SRCC) and the International Association of Electrical Inspectors (IAEI), the forum is specifically designed for local building planners and inspectors, builders and solar installers, and others who will benefit, including fire officials. Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are available from ICC-SRCC, IAEI and NABCEP (North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners). Space is limited. REGISTER
Solar+Storage, Scorecard & Saturation – Oh my!
Catch IREC’s regulatory team Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday as they share the latest regulatory policy updates in solar+storage, grid saturation, and an in-depth overview of a new IREC website that rates state shared renewable energy programs. Here’s where you’ll find us:
Monday, July 10 – 1:30-3pm PT
The Next Frontier: Pioneering Local Resiliency with Solar+Storage
IREC’s Regulatory Program Director, Sara Baldwin Auck, moderates this panel on solar+storage success stories and case studies for local resiliency and emergency planning from three key markets, San Francisco, New York City, and Salt Lake City. Related successes from the US Department of Energy Solar Market Pathways Teams across the country will also be highlighted.
Tuesday, July 11 – 3-4:00pm PT
IREC’s 3iAwards Ceremony
Join us as we honor the nation’s best of 2017 Innovation, Ingenuity and Inspiration in both renewable energy and energy efficiency. Along with our 3iAward winners, we’ll also recognize exemplary people, projects and programs – our Energy Heroes – at the Innovation & Application Stage, Level 3, Alcove 1 at Moscone West (and plan to stick around for a bite of cake!) RSVP

The State of the States:National Shared Renewables Scorecard and Other Tools You Can Use
IREC’s Sara Baldwin Auck moderates this session on IREC’s newest online tool, a first-of-its kind assessment of state shared solar policies and key insights on what’s working and what’s not for community shared solar programs. In addition, this session will feature other navigational tools and resources for community solar and multifamily solar policy decision-making and program design.
Wednesday July 12 – 9:00-10:45am PT
Grid Saturation: Improving Local Capacity Analysis to Host More Solar
Experts including Sky Stanfield, who represents IREC through Shute, Mihaly & Weinberger, LLP, discuss grid saturation’s early successes, pitfalls and key lessons learned, so states and industry representatives can be aware. We’ll discuss the current state of play and explore some possible pathways for next steps.
