SMA America and SMA Canada
August 28, 2012
SMA America plans to highlight several of its residential, commercial and utility-scale solutions—including four new products—at Solar Power International in Orlando, Fla., September 10-13, 2012. The company will be attending this year as the show's exclusive Terawatt sponsor.
As the Terawatt sponsor, SMA aims to demonstrate its support for the industry and exhibit its leadership and strength as an organization in what has been a challenging year for many in the industry.
“We have come to rely on Solar Power International as an event that brings together the best and the brightest in the industry,” said Jurgen Krehnke, president and general manager of SMA America and president of SMA Canada. “We look forward to sharing some of our newest solutions and efforts, especially because this is the first time the show will be on the east coast and we believe the region is well-positioned for solar growth.”
Jurgen Krehnke, who is responsible for SMA’s North American business functions, will join other company leaders on a CEO panel entitled, “Growth in an Uncertain Market,” which will take place Monday, September 10, from 5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
Solar Power International attendees can expect to see one of SMA’s most dynamic displays to date. Products on display at SMA’s booth (no. 2010) include:
New to this year’s exhibit is SMA’s social media corner, where attendees can tweet live with SMA and record their own video message to SMA in an on-site video booth.
The Solar Academy and the Sunny Pro Club will be on site as well to highlight SMA’s unique support, training and educational opportunities. Solar Academy special training courses will include:
SMA will also have an in-booth presentation area and will feature five different speakers over the course of the show.
