Upcoming Solar Power International (SPI) 2012


Dear Fellow Solar Enthusiasts,

(Please click on red links below)

There is an upcoming solar event, the Solar Power International (SPI) 2012, that will take place in Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL, between September 10-13, 2012.  It is considered one of the largest and most comprehensive solar energy event in North America.  Besides thousands of professionals from solar energy and related fields, former President Bill Clinton will be there as a keynote speaker on September 12, 2012, 4:00 pm-5:00 pm, to describe the challenge of globalization, to emphasize the growing interdependence, and to point toward the path of a common future based on shared goals and values.  SPI is also partnering with Solar Energy International (SEI) and North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) to provide free technical training in Orlando (Booth 1008);these 60-90 minute sessions, taught by SEI’s and NABCEP’s experienced instructors, are available to all SPI Full Conference and Expo Hall Only registrants.

“SPI is the most valuable U.S. solar networking event with unrivaled opportunities to meet with both leading and up-and-coming players in the solar sector from around the world.”  Lisa Frantzis, Managing Director of Energy, Navigant commented.

This is what Lee Peterson, Sr. Manager of National Tax-Renewable Energy, Reznick Group, said, “I’ve attended SPI every year since 2006, and it has always been the absolute best solar industry event. It attracts everyone who matters in the industry, provides current updates on all important aspects of solar energy, and gets all the people you need to meet in one place at one time. SPI is a must-attend event for every serious solar energy professional.”

Here is:  the Schedule-at-a-Glance, Registration information, Accommodation, Solar Idea Swaps, PV Technical TrainingsTurn Your Trip to SPI into a Vacation, etc.  To wet your appetite for this event, please allow me to show you a clip of SPI of last year (2011), below:

Response to President Bill Clinton’s Keynote Speech at ARPA-E 2012


Dear Readers,

(Please click onred linksbelow)

If you are in favor of renewable,  clean, or solar energy, please sign this petition for FIT/CLEAN Program, accessible at Thank you very much.


Dear Friends & Readers,

Please allow me to share this speech by our 42nd  President Bill Clinton of the United States, who spoke at the 2012 ARPA-E (Advanced Research Projects Agency)- Energy Innovation Summit, held at Gaylord National Hotel & Convention Center, 201 Waterfront Street, National Habor, MD  20745, at 11:30 A.M.on day three (Feb. 29, 2012) of this summit.  This third annual Energy Innovation Summit is designed to unite key players from all sectors of American energy innovation community to share ideas for how to lead the world in development of future generation clean energy technologies, to develop our nation’s energy resources, and to build an American economy that will last. Please listen patiently and carefully, to the keynote speech below:

As you may have remembered, one of the main reasons why I even started this site , was to try to increase better understanding of an effective incentive program, Feed-In-Tariff, for renewable energy.  So, I’d like to post a letter in response  to President Clinton’s speech, below:

Dear President Clinton,

After having heard your wonderful speech at ARPA-E of 2012 concerning the energy issue, I feel compelled to write you, hoping that you will consider promoting one of the low hanging fruits with proven track record of success in creating local jobs, speeding up nations’ transition into renewable energy age, and bringing forth economic prosperity. This low hanging fruit is Effective Feed-In-Tariff (FIT);FIT originated in USA during Carter’s administration in 1978, but more successfully implemented in Germany and was most instrumental in establishing Germany as the leader in renewable energy world. Understanding that in order to truly enforce an effective feed-in-tariff for all renewable/clean energies in USA, it is necessary to either change feed-in rate (implementing effective feed-in rate) on a state-by-state level or change our federal law. Neither is easy. Please refer to my web site May 8-Aug. 4, 2011;Oct. 14, 2011*; and Nov. 11, 2011* posts on effective FIT.  With your leadership and guidance, I hope you will consider to help promote the change necessary in order to induce the implementation of effective Feed-In-Tariff  for renewable/clean energy.  Then we will be able to see dramatic increase of local jobs, entrepreneurship in renewable/clean energy industry, economic prosperity, and clean energy including (and not limited to) solar rooftop installations.  Only then, we will have the opportunity of gaining the leadership position in renewable energy world/age.

Kind regard,

Now, my question to you, my friends and readers, is: do you think President Clinton will get to read this/my letter?

One can always hope….
