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.
