Since 2009, SunSpec Alliance and its members have worked fearlessly to make Distributed Energy Resources-solar PV and energy storage empowered by standardized, secure data communication-the best, most efficient source of energy generation on the planet.

2020 will mark the birth of an all-digital, distributed grid with the SunSpec ecosystem serving as a catalyst for innovation. To prepare for this future, please join us to review progress, take stock of SunSpec technical and market development programs, and help celebrate our collective success in lovely La Jolla, the jewel of the Pacific.

Event Profile

With executives and technical leaders coming from around the globe (San Diego International airport is 15 minutes away), we’ll kick off SunSpec’s 10th anniversary celebration with a no-host cocktail hour on Wednesday evening of October 2nd at the historic Grande Colonial Hotel in La Jolla, California.

On Thursday October 3rd, SunSpec members can enjoy breakfast in La Jolla village, take a stroll on the beach, or meet with other members prior to joining us mid-day at the nearby Conrad Prebys Performing Arts Center for our annual member meeting.

With official business concluded in the late afternoon, we’ll return to the Grande Colonial to enjoy the sunset before starting our 10th anniversary dinner and celebration.

For those with a little extra time, on Friday, October 4, a van will take us to the nearby University of California San Diego to tour the UCSD/SunSpec Advanced Inverter laboratory and the many other solar-, storage-, and electric vehicle related research projects on the UCSD campus. After the tour, you are free to enjoy the weekend and all that greater San Diego has to offer.
