The renewable energy industry is unstoppable, and nowhere was this more evident than at the RE+ 2023 conference in Las Vegas. The Nor-Cal team hit the road to attend this year's largest convention for the renewable industry, and we were met with an electrifying atmosphere and a record-breaking turnout. With over 40,000 attendees and hundreds of booths, the event took over the Venetian hotel resorts, signaling the rapid growth of the industry.
A Thriving Industry Evident at RE+ 2023
RE+ 2023 was certainly a hub of industry leaders, including Asset Owners, EPCs (Engineering, Procurement, and Construction companies), battery suppliers, and renewable energy innovators. The sheer size of the event, which encompassed exhibitions, speaker events, demos, and meeting areas, demonstrated the robust growth of the renewable energy sector. It was abundantly clear that renewables are the right industry to be in, and the Nor-Cal team was thrilled to be a part of it.
The SCADA Provider Dilemma
While the industry continues to expand rapidly, one glaring challenge is the shortage of SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) providers. SCADA systems are essential for monitoring and controlling renewable energy installations, making them a crucial component of the industry. As the industry grows, capable SCADA providers like Nor-Cal are in high demand, which is great for our busy and bustling team!
Networking Success at the Nor-Cal Happy Hour
We love our customers! One of the highlights of the RE+ 2023 experience was the highly successful Nor-Cal Happy Hour. We had the privilege of hosting our top EPC customers, strengthening existing connections, and forging new relationships. To our pleasant surprise, an up-and-coming EPC also made a special guest appearance, underscoring the event's success and our strong standing in the industry.
Maintaining a Stellar Reputation
Another major highlight was the reaffirmation of Nor-Cal's stellar reputation within the industry. Feedback from customers, industry colleagues, and even former employees highlighted that we are still widely considered as the go-to SCADA provider within renewables. Our commitment to delivering best-in-class solutions, remaining nimble despite an ever-increasing project volume, and providing exceptional customer service continue to set us apart in the industry.
A Sense of Community and Camaraderie
At RE+, it was so wonderful to see many familiar faces from the industry among the attendees. This sense of community and camaraderie is what makes this event a must-attend. The connections made and insights gained will undoubtedly propel Nor-Cal and the renewable energy industry forward.
The Nor-Cal team's experience at RE+ 2023 was nothing short of exceptional. From the bustling exhibition floor to our successful Happy Hour event and the reaffirmation of our industry reputation, it was a conference filled with networking, exciting opportunities, and a clear indication that the renewable energy industry is on an upward trajectory. As we continue to innovate and support the growth of renewables, Nor-Cal remains at the forefront, committed to delivering excellence in SCADA solutions and customer service. We look forward to what the future holds for our industry and our role in shaping it. Learn more about our company and/or reach out to chat about your next big project!
