Head to Brooklyn for Intersolar Summit USA East

IntersolarMore than 300 solar and energy storage experts will gather at the Intersolar Summit USA East in Brooklyn to discuss possible chances and challenges of current solar programs and energy storage systems. Brooklyn, N.Y., is the perfect location for solar and energy storage conferences of such dimension and international importance. Almost half of the US solar companies, i.e. approx. 3,000, are located on the East Coast. A total of 15,000 solar jobs are in Massachusetts which therefore ranks second in US solar employment statistics, followed by New York and New Jersey in fourth and fifth place respectively. This is mainly due to regional funding measures and initiatives which make solar installations particularly interesting for private individuals.

Great growth is being expected in the eastern U.S. solar and energy storage markets, especially now the solar investment tax credit (ITC) has been extended for another five years and Governor Cuomo has announced New York State’s approval of a $5 billion Clean Energy Fund to encourage renewable sources of electricity such as solar on January 21.

That’s why last years’ extremely successful Intersolar Summit USA East is returning to Brooklyn, N.Y., on March 24, 2016. Intersolar Summit USA East gives its attendees a chance, to stay on top of latest policy developments, opportunities and key issues impacting the U.S. East Coast solar and energy storage markets.

In order to effectively discuss the huge number of current governmental as well as private funding and financing possibilities, one of the two summit tracks in the afternoon will focus exclusively on this topic.
High-caliber financial experts – among them Michael Eckhart, Managing Director and Global Head of Environmental Finance Corporate and Investment Banking of the Citigourp, Inc., Alfred Griffin, President of New York Green Bank, Jigar Shah, co-founder of Generate Capital Inc. as well as Cisco DeVries, CEO of Renew Financial – will be presenting investment possibilities and will be available for direct exchange with the audience.

A second track, taking place at the same time, will focus on the latest developments in the energy storage segment, which are the reason for the solar industry gathering even further momentum. Apart from technical innovations, advantages and disadvantages of the different technical systems as well as their application in practice, experts will take a closer look at profitable business models within the US storage market.

Officially supported by the New York State Senate represented by New York State Senator Kevin S. Parker, as well as numerous state-level solar associations it offers great business matchmaking opportunities with regional market intermediaries and leading suppliers.
