  • Thu
    5:30 to 8:30Edison Electric Institute, Washington, D.C.

    The utilization of microgrids plus battery storage is seen increasingly by public and private organizations as the wave of the future to help ensure energy reliability and security in the age of extreme weather events and cyber security threats. Partners Edison Electric Institute and Resilient Virginia will feature speakers and topics such as:

    • technology that supports the utility/microgrid interface
    • tools for developers to assess microgrid viability based on existing infrastructure and regulations
    • how local governments in the DMV region are working with private companies to make microgrid development financially feasible
    • how regional Department of Defense installations are including microgrids as part of their energy security systems

    A number of companies and organizations will be exhibiting their solutions.

    Speakers: John Caldwell, director of economics at the Edison Electric Institute, and others to be announced.


    Admission:  General – $30 ($25 early bird through 10/12); Job seekers and students – $20 ($15 early bird through 10/12). Admission includes program, pizza, and beverages.

  • Wed
    Lusaka, Zambia

    The SSA Power Summit hosted by Vale Media Group, the number 1 Sub-Saharan African B2B events company, will provide a platform to address some key challenges of improving aging power infrastructure, developing new power infrastructure, more cost effective temporary power solutions and much more. We will bring together Ministries of Power & Energy, State Power providers, Public – Private partnerships (PPP), Independent Power Producers (IPP’s) and key solution providers to tackle some of the most pressing issues within the African Power industry.

  • Wed
    Newcastle, Australia

    Started on the U.C. Berkeley campus in 2005, the informal annual Microgrid Symposium has been circumnavigating the globe ever since. And the 2017 event is coming up this fall.

    The 2017 Microgrid Symposium will be held this year at the CSIRO Energy Centre in Newcastle, Australia.

    This critical mass of microgrid brainpower will be held this year at the CSIRO Energy Centre for the Newcastle 2017 Symposium on Microgrids. The event is scheduled for November 29-30. This is the first year  the symposium has been held in Australia, which is fast emerging as a leader in microgrid development and grid defection.

    This critical mass of microgrid brainpower will be held this year at the CSIRO Energy Centre for the Newcastle 2017 Symposium on Microgrids.

    About two hours north of Sydney, Newcastle rests in the midst of the spectacular New South Wales coastline, and the Hunter Valley wine region. As usual, about 120 of the world’s invited top microgrid researchers, policymakers and developers will enjoy two packed days of presentations, networking and general microgrid chatter, plus a day of local technical visits.

    Sessions are organized by region, Asia, Europe and The Americas, and experts from each region choose the speakers and organization that best represent microgrid progress in their region during the last year. There will also be a special panel on hardware, a poster display, and the ever-popular remote applications session.

    Plenty of time is allowed for serious networking, and breaks and mealtimes are informal. Most of the papers and posters from past symposiums can be seen and downloaded from the Symposium’s website.

    The Microgrid Symposium is a by-invitation-only event, but you can visit the event page here.
