SDA recognizes the importance of education to advance the use of renewables and sustainable development practices.

We believe that renewable energy applications should be viewed as integral to mainstream building design and construction, and we are working diligently to foster this idea. A vital part of our work is the dissemination of information to speed the evolution of established codes and trade practices.
