Now in its 35th year, ATRAA is the one-stop professional development event and conference for Australia’s growing solar industry.
The three-day program kicks off with the ever-popular Professional Development Day.
Clean Energy Council Accreditation Business Manager Kate Allsopp says “This is the place for installers and retailers to ensure they are up-to-date on any changes to Clean Energy Council’s Accreditation Guidelines, as well as additional requirements from the Clean Energy Regulator.
“The industry is constantly evolving and improving its benchmark standards, so most installers like to attend this event, and we certainly encourage it,” Ms Allsopp says.Article continues below…
Ms Allsopp says that the networking drinks at the end of the day at ATRAA are also popular.
“It’s a good chance for everyone to catch up and relax at the end of a long day.”
Ms Allsopp adds that the Thursday and Friday conference program for ATRAA includes issues relevant to the broader photovoltaic (PV) solar industry.
“With plenty of change occurring in the industry since 2011, the program will focus on where residential solar PV is at across the nation, what’s likely to happen in the short term, and where it sees itself in terms of the bigger picture,” she says.
The latest developments in technology, as well as exploring opportunities for growth, are also features of the ATRAA program.
On the Friday night of the event, the Clean Energy Week 2012 program officially ends with the ATRAA formal dinner, sponsored by Lightway, which also includes the presentation of the 2012 Clean Energy Industry Technical Awards.
“The Awards have a fantastic reputation throughout the industry, and it’s always a great event to end the week,” Ms Allsopp notes.
This year’s dinner and awards ceremony will be held at Luna Park in Sydney, with comedian Peter Berner as Master of Ceremonies.
