The Mission and Vision of Solar Power International
Solar Power International is powered by the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) and the Smart Electric Power Alliance (SEPA). SPI held its inaugural show in 2004 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. 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.
Established in 1974, the Solar Energy Industries Association is the national trade association for the solar energy industry. Through advocacy and education, SEIA and its 1,100 member companies are building a strong solar industry. As the voice of the industry, SEIA works to make solar a mainstream, viable, and significant energy source by expanding markets, removing market barriers, strengthening the industry and educating the public on the benefits of solar energy.
The Smart Electric Power Alliance (SEPA) is an educational non-profit that provides a trusted platform for education, research and collaboration to help our members deploy and integrate solar, storage, demand response, and other distributed energy resources into the grid.
