You are invited to join all who love energy, at YPE's 2018 Gala & Charity Fundraiser, our marquee annual event! This year's semi-formal Gala will be hosted at the prestigious St Francis Yacht Club on Nov 27, from 5:45pm – 10:00pm. This year's guests of honour include:

Abby Hopper – The President & CEO of the Solar Energy Industries Association. Abby drives solar policy by leading SEIA through today's turbulent and unpredictable political environment. As solar gains prominence and records unprecidental growth, Abby guides SEIA's research, communications, and industry leadership support.

Dan Shugar – The energy exec we all want to become. Founder & CEO of Nextracker, former CEO of Solaria, former President at SunPower and at PowerLight. He throws the best solar parties, and even provides the entertainment, "slappen da bass" like you wish you could.

Andrew Beebe -- A World Positive Investor. After selling his company Energy Innovations to Suntech in 2008, Andrew served as Chief Commercial Officer at Suntech as well as Vice President of Global Product Strategy. He is currently a Managing Director at Obvious Ventures.

Moderator:
