Clean energy is emerging as one of the key strategic industries of the 21st century, with global trade in solar and wind related products rivalling that of the trade in oil and gas. International trade in clean energy products and services represents a major opportunity for Global Britain to support our partners across the world in tackling climate change.
Going Clean aims to bring some clarity to how the clean energy sector is governed, looking at the structure of the markets, the intricacies of the supply chains, the geopolitics of trade, and the expert networks that drive deployment.
What will I learn?
In this Going Clean event, Department of International Trade Clean Energy Sector Specialist Dr Richard Hall will be joined by Vice President of Technical Services at the Solar Rating and Certification Corporation (ICCSRCC) Shawn Martin, to discuss the US International Code Council (ICC) International Solar Energy Provisions (ISEP).
Installing a Solar PV or Solar Thermal system requires compliance with a wide range of building codes and trying to figure out which bits of these codes is relevant to the solar installation is a daunting task. The ISEP provides a curated selection of these building codes that relevant to a solar installation in one easy to understand document.
