Solar & Storage Live is more than just an average conference and expo – it’s an immersive experience designed to keep participants engaged from every angle.

There will be theatres lining the outer edge of the exhibition floor, hosting energised sessions while at the heart of the action transcends with Installer University sessions right on the show floor. Participants are free to seamlessly move between sessions and explore the bustling expo floor simultaneously.

2. Discover cutting-edge products & solutions
Hundreds of residential, commercial, industrial, and utility-scale solar solutions will be on display, as well as storage solutions and EV charging solutions.

Solar & Storage Live Australia has an impressive line-up of 100 exhibitors in its inaugural year, including industry titans like Tesla, Jinko Solar, and Canadian Solar to trusted partners such as Supply Partners and AGL.

The exhibitor lineup is nothing short of extraordinary, with distributors representing powerhouse brands such as LONGI, Sungrow, Trina, REC and more. These industry leaders are at the forefront of innovation, pushing boundaries and driving progress in renewable energy. With so many heavyweights on board, the stage is set for an unforgettable experience.

3. Walk away with show specials, prizes and giveaways
