In conjunction with the 2014 SunShot Grand Challenge Summit and Peer Review, the SunShot Initiative is hosting a number of workshops for members of the solar community on Thursday, May 22 at the Hilton Anaheim, California. Workshops offer an opportunity for stakeholders to come together and discuss key issues for the solar industry. SunShot team members often take these discussions and workshop outcomes into consideration when developing new funding opportunity announcements.
Women In Solar Breakfast, presented by the SunShot Initiative. The women of the SunShot Initiative invite you to join us for a unique opportunity for professional women in the solar community to hear our success stories and learn about opportunities for collaboration. We hope that connections made during this networking event will help strengthen the impact that women have in the solar energy industry. Our featured guest speaker will be ARPA-E (Advanced Research Projects Agency–Energy) director Dr. Cheryl Martin.
Find out how the Energy Department is working to improve the energy efficiency, design, construction and operation of high-performance commercial buildings through research at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory's new FLEXLAB, Facility for Low Energy Experiments in Buildings.
The 2014 SunShot Grand Challenge Summit and Peer Review will host a Technology Forum showcasing innovative and cutting-edge technologies that are helping to drive down the cost of solar energy.
The Technology Forum will be open during hours listed below. Please note that on the evenings of May 20 and 21, access to certain sections of the posters display will be closed to attendees to enable the review process.
The future of solar energy is bright. In 2014, solar is on the precipice of assuming its place as a mainstream, high penetration generation source in the U.S. As solar technologies become increasingly cost-competitive and begin to reach grid parity across the country, the industry is shifting its focus to opening new markets and realizing its fullest potential. With the 2020 SunShot affordability goal within reach, the horizon is clear for solar leaders to steer the industry down its next road.
