In the REC Leadership Panel, REC Senior Management and REC experts from across the globe will shed light on solar’s mid- and long-term future, new technology and business trends and how markets across Europe, US and APAC can learn from each other following the global health crisis. The panel will be moderated by Michael Schmela, Executive Advisor at SolarPower Europe, Managing Director at TaiyangNews and former Editor-in-Chief of PHOTON International.

With several solar industry conventions being postponed or cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, REC has decided to build the virtual booth to continue showcasing its powerful solar panels and maintain its connection with distributors, installers, customers and the press. Accessible to everyone all over the world, the virtual booth offers a unique opportunity to get up close to REC products, including the flagship REC Alpha solar panel, and rotate them 360 degrees, offering views from all angles of the photovoltaic cells and support bars across the rear.

In addition, the virtual exhibition space will feature an installer corner displaying installer-related services such as the REC Certified Solar Professional Program, the REC SunSnap app, and the new REC ProPortal. A live webinar including a demo of this new installer portal will be available from the virtual booth, explaining the new tools it offers to simplify REC’s installers’ work and help them generate sales with REC solar panels.

"Empowering consumers always begins with empowering your customers. REC always puts homeowners and commercial businesses front and center, and it is crucial for us to stay connected to our installers, distributors and other key stakeholders in these times. This is why we decided to go digital with our booth and panel," says REC Group’s CEO Steve O’Neil. "As ‘Solar’s Most Trusted,’ it is of the upmost priority for REC to continue to share our latest products and service developments as well as our expert view on market trends," O’Neil adds.
