The event (German California Solar Day) was a pretty fabulous display of Clean Technology companies taking advantage of international trade and collaborating internationally to scale renewable energy. The event marked the two year anniversary of the Joint Venture partnership of Q-Cells and Solaria. There were great presentations by local players Gary Gerber (CalSEIA), Matt Cheney (MMA Renewable Ventures), Daniel Kammen (Berkeley), and German players describing the German market and their predictions for the future of solar world wide. Their presentations were packed with information, and they are posted on the site (I just checked!).
