Go SOLAR Florida will host the Third Annual Go SOLAR and Renewable Energy Fest at the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center, in Fort Lauderdale. This FREE event will feature the latest information on alternative and renewable energy. It is quickly becoming the premier event in South Florida to promote renewable energy and learn how to save money while using cleaner sources of energy.
Last years' event had more that 65 local, national, and international renewable energy exhibitors, 42 esteemed speakers and over 1700 attendees over the two-day conference. Due to popular demand, this year will feature more exhibitors and less speakers.
The U.S. Department of Energy SunShot Initiative is a collaborative national effort that aggressively drives innovation to make solar energy fully cost-competitive with traditional energy sources before the end of the decade. Through SunShot, DOE supports efforts by private companies, academia, and national laboratories to drive down the cost of solar electricity to $0.06 per kilowatt-hour.
