New York and Beyond
Advancing Microgrids Nationally with Lessons Learned in New York
May 19th, 2016
Join top microgrid leaders to set the course for national growth at this one-day event in Manhattan, May 19, 2016.
The power industry began over 100 years ago in New York. And New York is where it is re-inventing itself with microgrids at the core of the revolution. Spurred by the $40 million NY Prize, hundreds of New York communities are exploring microgrids, making the state a launching pad to propel national microgrid growth.
Top energy companies have arrived to develop microgrids in the state. These experts are forming vendor teams and gaining crucial financial, regulatory and technical knowledge to carry forward.
- What are their insights?
- How can the industry use lessons learned through the NY Prize as a springboard to build a national microgrid market?
- And what are the takeaways for communities, businesses and institutions as they develop microgrids?
Find out at “New York and Beyond: Advancing Microgrids Nationally with Lessons Learned in New York,” a one-day gathering on May 19, 2016 of the most noted industry leaders.
