The merger provides a single source for information and collaboration for utilities and distributed energy resources (DER) providers on the smart transition to clean energy. Julia Hamm, CEO and President of the Smart Electric Power Alliance (SEPA), and Sharon Allan, CEO and President of SGIP, announced the intent to merge the two organisations under the SEPA brand, stating that given the increasing integration of DER and grid modernization, a merger of SGIP and SEPA makes sense. Hamm said. “Moreover, the combination of resources and expertise will accelerate grid modernization efforts and have an even greater impact on the industry.”

INTERSOLAR SUMMIT USA East Returning To Brooklyn, New York On March 23, 2017

The development of the solar and energy storage industry at the U.S. East Coast has been very strong and dynamic over the past years. A total of 15,000 solar jobs are in Massachusetts, ranking 2nd in U.S. solar employment statistics, followed by New York and New Jersey in 4th and 5th place respectively. The State of New York has also pushed forward the energy transition by mandating 50% of renewable energy by 2030. In September 2016 New York City set its new target for solar capacity to 1 GW of solar PV by 2030 and its first energy storage deployment target to 100 MWh by 2020.
