The committee includes clean energy leaders representing business, policy, innovation, load serving entities, and nonprofits that support the renewables industry. The board members include:
- Dr. William P. Acker, Executive Director at New York Battery and Energy Storage Technology Consortium (NY-BEST)

“Uniting these top conferences under the guidance of these industry leaders will construct a highly relevant, thought-provoking, and comprehensive program,” said Wes Doane, Event Director of Intersolar North America and Energy Storage North America. “Things are now changing so quickly in solar + storage and e-Mobility that thought leadership takes on new meaning. Our goal is to provide attendees with a clear and comprehensive look at the forces driving these industries—from programs to policies to partnerships. The advisory board will be working to highlight emerging market trends and technological advancements, guided by their collective experience in clean energy.”
Working in partnership with ESNA founder Strategen Consulting, the #isnaesna2021 Advisory Board will develop and select industry-specific keynotes, presentations, panels, and more for an expert and multi-faceted conference program.
“This is a time of profound change, rapid transitions, and global progress in the solar and energy storage markets—and next year’s ISNA and ESNA conferences will reflect that evolution,” said Janice Lin, Conference Chair and Strategen CEO. “As the economy rebuilds and businesses adapt to a post-pandemic world, the industry we serve is looking for information, insight, and inspiration. We look forward to coming together in January to co-create and accelerate the clean energy transformation.”
The call for abstracts to present at #isnaesna21 is now open, with a submission deadline of July 8, 2020. Full details can be found here.
