The world is a big place.
Solar energy is the future.
If the world’s leaders want to do something about it, they need to join this powerful international initiative that has brought together more than 400 countries, more than 90 percent of them developing countries.
The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), the world-leading trade association representing more than 1,000 solar companies, will hold its first summit in Toronto on March 18.
“We’re looking to create a framework that will help us build on the momentum that has been created by the Paris Agreement and the solar industry’s ability to contribute to climate action,” said Stephen Larkin, the CEO of SEIA.
“The world needs to work together to help accelerate global progress.”
What will it look like?
The summit will include workshops on issues such as climate change, renewable energy, and energy efficiency, as well as discussions about the solar energy market, its challenges, and opportunities.
The summit is part of the Solar Investment Summit, an initiative to foster international collaboration on solar and other energy technology.
A number of industry stakeholders will also be in attendance, including the International Energy Agency, the World Bank, and the Canadian Solar Energy Association.
A panel of experts will also deliver a roundtable on global climate change and the impacts on the solar sector.
This roundtable is an important part of this event, which is also an opportunity for solar companies to show their business case for building and deploying a solar system in a developing country.
The roundtable will also include opportunities for Canadians to network with others and get their ideas to the table.
The government will be hosting the summit and will be working with other stakeholders to make sure this is a good forum for leaders and investors to come together and discuss the future of solar.
What to expect at the summit: The Summit of the World’s Solar Leaders is being held in Toronto, Canada, on March 19 and 20.
The participants will be from around the world.
The solar industry has made significant strides in the last decade, and today we have nearly 200 countries signing on to the Paris Climate Agreement, and over 200 major solar companies joining the global community to create the Solar Alliance.
This summit is designed to give leaders a chance to hear from people who have already taken steps toward achieving the Sustainable Development Goals and to provide a platform for the solar community to share its experience and ideas on how we can accelerate climate change mitigation.
For those who have not participated in the solar business and do not have access to the webinar, the summit will have live webcast video and a Q&A session with experts.
The key points of the summit include: The summit aims to bring together leaders from different industries, including from the solar power industry, to discuss how we are moving forward, how we need to build on our successes and how we have opportunities ahead, and what steps we can take to help reduce emissions and reduce the cost of solar power in developing countries, said Larkin.
“As a world leader in solar, we must take action and act on climate change,” he said.
“Our actions will help create a more prosperous and secure future for everyone, including those who are less well off and those living in poverty.”
The summit’s panel of industry leaders will be joined by a representative from the World Solar Energy Conference, which organizes the solar summit, as a co-chair.
The conference is also sponsoring the conference, and will hold panels on energy efficiency in solar systems and the role of climate change in the global energy system.
The Summit is part the World Summit on Solar Power, a global initiative that aims to encourage countries to work towards meeting the goal of doubling the global renewable energy supply by 2030.
This year’s summit will be held on March 15 and 16.
