PRLog - Dec. 15, 2011 - (December 9, 2011) Las Vegas  – Solar Power Generation USA (www.solarpowergenerationusa.com), the award-winning conference on large-scale solar power generation in the US, announced its 2012 lineup of industry-leading speakers, focused streams covering the most critical topics to the industry, and a new emphasis on facilitating networking among attendees. Named the 2011 “Best American Conference” by the Conference Awards, Solar Power Generation USA (SPG) will feature more than 60 subject matter experts speaking across four dedicated channels: Concentrated Solar Power (CSP), Photovoltaic (PV), Concentrated Photovoltaic (CPV), and Operation and Maintenance (O&M). Hundreds of senior-level leaders in project development and finance, solar technologies, policy, utilities and grid connection will decide the future of solar in the US during the SPG event, which runs January 31 through February 2 in Las Vegas.  

“We’ve listened to our past attendees and industry experts to create conference streams specifically focused on CSP, PV and CPV, so this year each technology has a forum for discussion, networking, and progress,” said Nadim Chaudhry, Managing Director of Green Power Conferences and Solar Power Generation USA. “Additionally, we recognize the crucial role utility partners play in this industry, which is why we’re once again providing the Utility VIP Pass program to encourage their attendance and drive new projects.”

Agenda highlights include trending topics such as the opportunity for the US to lead the global solar market, the price and value of solar power, working with utilities to meet Renewable Portfolio Standard regulations, and the financial impact of changes to tax incentives. Keynote speakers are from some of the most well-respected organizations in the space, including 8minutenergy, Brightsource Energy, Duke Energy, Element Power, Iberdrola Renewables, La Plata Electric Association, NV Energy, Recurrent Energy, Sempra Generation, Siemens, SOLON, Torresol, and UniSource Energy.

New to the 2012 event, SPG has added a third day to the agenda specifically designed for structured industry networking. The day will feature unique roundtable opportunities during which key stakeholders will meet face to face. Specific topics planned for these sessions range from permitting on federal lands to securing financial investments and closing utility-scale power purchase agreements.

The 2012 Solar Power Generation Awards will also be presented at the show, recognizing outstanding achievement in four categories. Award nominations are now open for Solar Utility of the Year, PV Project of the Year, CSP Project of the Year, and CPV Breakthrough Achievement of the Year. Nominations close January 6, 2012, and can be sent to laura.dinnewell@greenpowerconferences.com.
