June 2, 2010

The Glass Association of North America (GANA) will hold its first GANA Solar Symposium on Wednesday, June 30 in Kansas City, Mo., in conjunction with the ASTM E44.20 Glass for Solar Applications meeting. The symposium features several presentations from top experts in the newly energized solar glazing industry.

"The GANA Solar Symposium is yet another way that GANA is showing its dedication to educating the glass and glazing industry on the energy saving potential of architectural glass products," says Urmilla Sowell, GANA technical director. "This event features the strengths of the GANA Energy Committee and its commitment to representing our members in every aspect of the solar energy movement."

Scheduled to speak are George Petzen of Indiana-based Linel Signature, Joel Feingold of Pennsylvania-based Strainoptic Technologies Inc., and others from AGC Glass and PPG. Each will present a different facet of the solar glazing industry. The event is open to anyone in the construction industry looking to learn more about solar glazing technologies and increased efficiency offered by glass and glazing.

"GANA remains the leader on energy-related issues for the glass and glazing industry," said Sowell. "Furthermore, we are the only association that fully represents the glass industry as a whole on both technical and energy issues."

The GANA Solar Symposium will be held from 1 - 5 p.m. at the Westin Crown Center in Kansas City, Mo.
