What Others are Saying About Our Past Events

To be held in Boston, the November 6-8 conference promises to be the defining microgrid event of the year. Microgrid 2017 follows up Microgrid Knowledge’s successful 2016 event in New York City where energy leaders charted the future course for the rising microgrid industry.

“I feel like I am speaking to the all-star team of the microgrid industry.” — Micah Kotch, former director of the NY Prize, speaking at the Microgrid 2016 Conference in NYC.

“From our experience, there is no better group subject matter experts than those we meet with at the IDEA events. What is especially refreshing is how willing and enthused this group is to share hard earned lessons and best practices from their real world projects.” — John Webster, Icetec Energy Services (August, 2016)
