SAM Virtual Conference: June 20, 2012

The SAM Virtual Conference was a full-day online meeting held on June 20, 2012. Renewable energy professionals and academic researchers presented results of their work with SAM.

NREL emailed a request for abstracts to all registered SAM users, and chose the final list of presenters from the submissions. NREL and DOE were not involved in preparation of the presentations (except for the those presented by NREL staff), so their content reflects the experience and opinion of the presenters, not NREL or DOE.
