Last week the solar industry gathered in Orlando, FL for Solar Power International 2012. Companies released news on products, partnerships, and capacity, including findings from GTM Research that solar installations grew 116 percent from Q2 2011. This week, GTM Research announces the U.S. Solar Market Insight Conference, an executive-level event covering national and state-specific analysis and forecasting of the U.S. solar market.

The U.S. Solar Market Insight Conference is designed to demystify the U.S. solar industry by leveraging the exclusive data, insights, and trends from the U.S. Solar Market Insight Reports. The reports are the product of a GTM Research and Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) partnership. The event will take place Oct. 29-30, 2012 at The Westin Millbrae, near San Francisco, CA.

Conference attendees will learn how industry leaders are navigating complex market dynamics and local policies to reduce installation costs and increase project returns. Register to connect with leading financiers, policymakers, developers and technology providers to ensure project success. 

"The U.S. market continues to be a promising growth story with more than 3.2 gigawatts of annual PV installations expected in 2012," said Shayle Kann, Vice President, GTM Research. "However, the shifting project finance landscape, increasing competition from new entrants and often frustrating disarray of local policies makes navigating the U.S. market a challenge, even for incumbent players. The U.S. Solar Market Insight Conference leverages our partnership with SEIA and our U.S. research coverage to provide actionable intelligence to companies exploring or actively involved in the U.S. solar market."  

Registration discounts are available for SEIA members. The full agenda, speaker list, and registration information are available on the conference website -- visit
