A presentation will focus on state incentives, how they are performing and what are the new developments. There will also be an update on market trends for solar installations. Updates and perspectives will be shared on the programs underway on certification for hardware, practitioners, and training programs. Discussion will also deal with new ideas and models in educating the renewable energy workforce.
