SolarTech West Coast

Tuesday, September 30th - Wednesday, October 1st

Los Angeles, California

California continues to be a leading solar market in the United States. A plethora of sunny days combined with supportive solar policies have created an ideal solar market. Each market segment—utility-scale, residential and commercial—can boast a number of beneficial programs and incentives.

The U.S. is among the top countries in the world in electricity generated by the Sun and several of the world's largest utility-scale installations are located in the desert Southwest. There are plans to build many other large solar plants in the United States. While the U.S. has no national energy policy, many states have set individual renewable energy goals with solar power being included in various proportions. Governor Jerry Brown has signed legislation requiring California's utilities to obtain 33 percent of their electricity from renewable energy sources by the end of 2020.

Focusing on recent technology and commercial market developments within PV, CSP, CPV, OPVC, BIPV, Thin Film and solar thermal, SolarTech West Coast 2014, is a strictly B2B conference and exhibition.

Volt/VAR: Regulation and Optimization

Thursday, October 2nd - Friday, October 3rd

Denver, Colorado

Save 15% with registration code: VVNAV

Coordinated control of voltage and reactive power through the use of capacitor banks and regulators is one way that utilities can control demand and increase system efficiency. Of course, all of this must be managed by a sophisticated system of automatic controls. These types of advanced Volt/VAR projects are gaining in popularity, and many leading utilities have included Volt/VAR control as part of their overall smart grid road map. This type of demand management north of the meter has a multitude of system benefits, and customers and regulators will be able to see a tangible, positive impact on reliability as a result of smart grid technology implementation.

This conference will discuss the business case, the technical considerations, and the benefits of distribution system optimization by controlling voltage and reactive power. Click here for more information.
