About the event

SunSpec sets the communication standards that define the Distributed Energy Resource (DER) management and Electric Vehicle (EV) charging industries. These standards and the technologies they represent are going mainstream. Are you ready? Come to the SunSpec Alliance 2022 Annual Member Meeting and DER Technology Conference to prepare for what’s ahead.

The Big Picture

In 2023, IEEE©1547-2018, the U.S. national standard for DER, will be adopted across the country and unleash the market for networked DER and Electric Vehicle (EV) charging. SunSpec technologies are a central part of this standard. The Inflation Reduction Act has earmarked $370 billion dollars to deploy these types of technology solutions. This is a golden opportunity for the SunSpec ecosystem.

Join us in Las Vegas to learn how to leverage the SunSpec technology advantage, shape the smart energy future, network with colleagues, and celebrate our collective success.
