Solar & Energy Storage Summit 2024

1 January 2045 - 4 January 2045

San Francisco, CA


2024 Sponsors

Taking place June 26-27, 2024

The introduction of the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) promised to revolutionize the clean energy industries in the US and presented a billion-dollar opportunity for the North American solar and storage sector. Yet questions remain over the implantation of the Act, and challenges in supply chain and grid interconnection act as headwinds to growth.

Now in its seventeenth year, Wood Mackenzie’s Solar Energy and Storage Summit will drive the conversation forward to discuss how the sector can take advantage of the opportunities provided by the IRA, foster innovation in cell and battery technology, and evolve solar and storage business models for the ever-changing energy landscape.

Join Wood Mackenzie’s expert team of solar and energy storage research analysts and consultants in San Francisco on June 26-27 as they engage in powerful conversations with solar and energy storage developers, utilities, RTOs/ISOs, commercial offtakers, state and federal policymakers, and regulators, financiers and the solar and storage supply chain.
