The Mission and Vision of Solar Power International

Solar Power International is powered by the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) and Solar Electric Power Association (SEPA). SPI held its inaugural show in 2003 and was designed to serve and advance the solar energy industry by bringing together the people, products, and professional development opportunities that drive the solar industry and are forging its bright future.

This event focuses solely on creating an environment that fosters the exchange of ideas, knowledge and expertise for furthering solar energy development in the United States. Designed and produced by Solar Energy Trade Shows, our events supply your company with solutions that further your success. Offering superior networking, visibility and value, Solar Energy Trade Shows events are important to any company active in the solar market.

Unlike other solar conferences, all proceeds from SPI support the expansion of the solar energy industry through SEIA and SEPA’s year-round research and education activities, and SEIA’s extensive advocacy efforts. SPI’s primary mission is to deliver on the missions of both SEIA and SEPA in a way that strengthens the solar energy industry domestically and globally, through networking and education, and by creating an energetic and engaging marketplace to connect buyers and suppliers.

SPI is back on the West coast, this time in Anaheim

Solar Power International heads back to the west to Anaheim, California, September 14-17, 2015 at the Anaheim Convention Center.

Why Anaheim?

Anaheim is an obvious choice for Solar Power International. California is the leader in solar-related jobs in the US and is still a growing market! The Anaheim Convention Center is doing its part as well. The site for SPI 2015 has recently completed a 2.4 MW solar installation , covering 300,000 square feet of space above the exhibit halls!

  • In 2013, California installed 2,746 MW of solar electric capacity, ranking it 1st nationally.
  • The 7,808 MW of solar energy currently installed in California ranks the state 1st in the country in installed solar capacity. There is enough solar energy installed in the state to power 1,897,300 homes.
  • In 2013, $7.1 billion was invested in California to install solar for home, business and utility use. This represents a 83% increase over the previous year, and is expected to grow again this year.
