Congratulations to the Open Standards Champion Award Winners!

SunSpec 2020 Annual Member Meeting – December 8th, 2020 — Attendees of this year’s Annual Member Meeting gained an in-depth understanding of SunSpec’s successes, challenges, and goals to come, including a preview of the exciting developments around SunSpec standards being encoded into national standards, which will lead to a massive influx of SunSpec Certified interfaces in 2021.

As a highlight of the event, Tom Tansy, Chairman of SunSpec Alliance, awarded nine recipients the SunSpec Open Standards Champion Award. This prestigious distinction is awarded to individuals who have demonstrated an outstanding commitment to the development and establishment of a SunSpec standard. They have dedicated over 100 hours in a given year to a SunSpec initiative, worked collaboratively to achieve a common goal, and leveraged their professional influence to benefit the Distributed Energy industry as a whole.

The work of these Members reminds us that this Alliance belongs to each of us, and the trajectory of this industry is determined by its participants. Thank you to all who attended the meeting and congratulations to our award winners:
