While reflecting back on the year’s past, it is clear that the SunSpec Alliance is fueled by an industry of dedicated, hard working individuals and organizations. From our work groups participants, to our webinar attendees, we are consistently impressed by the level of engagement and support from our members and followers.
With that said, we would like to take this opportunity to wish Happy Holidays to our entire ecosystem and say a special thanks to our members who have demonstrated next-level support and dedication throughout the year:
It is with the support of these individuals and organizations, as well as the broader ecosystem of SunSpec members, that we are able to shape the future of the Distributed Energy revolution and drive progress towards a renewable energy future.
- Jay Johnson of Sandia National Labs – for leading the SunSpec & Sandia DER Cybersecurity working group for the fourth year and helping to build participation in the DER Cybersecurity initiative to more than 1,000 people.
