2015 Fact Finding Missions Announced
SEPA will be leading a group of approximately 30 utility executives to study how the rapid growth of solar and other variable renewables is driving change in the energy market “laboratory” of Hawaii. Face-to-face meetings with thought leaders and a range of electricity market stakeholders will focus on market design and energy resource challenges, new approaches to integration and reliability, and effective customer programs in this interactive mission. If you are a utility or solar industry executive who could benefit from participation in this executive-level mission, contact Julia Hamm at firstname.lastname@example.org or Cynthia Hunt Jaehne at email@example.com.

Energy Innovation in Texas: The Unique Role of Public Power & Cooperative Utilities
For SEPA’s mission to the de-regulated and dynamic electricity market of Texas, municipal and cooperative utilities will take center stage as they share their experience and best practices around resource planning, customer programs, and renewable and grid-integration projects, in this leading-edge market. We will explore the ties of renewable energy to economic development and the design of new residential communities. Utility staff working in renewable programs, integration and engineering, resource and strategic planning, as well as solar stakeholders seeking insight into this market, should plan on joining us in Texas. Registration for this mission will open soon.
