When industry leaders from across the globe gather virtually November 17-19 for Microgrid 2020 Global, discussions will be filled with expert insights and forecasts. The microgrid industry is rapidly accelerating, prices are plummeting, and all signs point to continued growth — but the shape, speed, and direction of that growth depend upon policy and market opportunities to point the way.

That is why understanding the current policy landscape, as well as what is both plausible and probable, is crucial for companies looking to succeed. 

At Microgrid 2020 Global, we go even farther though — our attendees and participants play an incredibly important role in shaping the future markets.

And it starts as soon as you and your colleagues register for our free event.

Step One: Sign Up, and Be Heard

Everyone who registers for the virtual Microgrid 2020 Global conference is invited to complete a microgrid industry-wide survey that seeks to identify priorities, challenges and opportunities. Your responses provide vital data and will be combined with that of thousands of other participants to share the story of microgrids with policy and decision-makers.

Step Two: Engage and Learn

Over the course of three days, our virtual conference includes more than 100 expert speakers, workshops, interactive sessions, and CEO interviews. From leading companies implementing multinational growth strategies to innovative startups changing the competitive energy landscape, participants will gain a thorough understanding of where the industry is today and where leaders see microgrids heading in the next decade.

Step Three: Rock the Vote

On day three, equipped with the latest developments, opportunities and challenges and a host of new contacts and collaborators, Microgrid Knowledge will host a first-of-its-kind interactive session. 

Built from the thousands of industry survey responses and equipped with insight into the latest microgrid developments and opportunities, participants in the Policy and Markets Workshop (11 am ET, November 19) will play the role of priority arbiters.

Microgrid Knowledge has invited policy experts to distill down the industry’s survey responses, provide an overview of different priorities’ impacts, and invite attendees to vote live for the top federal, state, and local priorities for the microgrid industry.

From thousands of answers, to a handful of top responses, to…

Step Four: A Clarion Call

To close out the virtual conference, industry leaders will convene to deliver a call to action — clear and actionable priorities for the industry to build upon, together.

By bringing attention to these agreed upon priorities, microgrid companies are seeking to build a platform for collaboration where companies of all shapes and sizes can help shape the future of microgrid policy and markets.

We can’t wait to see all of you – virtually for now – at Microgrid Global 2020 and are excited to help bring this collaborative initiative to fruition.

Act today, register and complete your industry survey to help us take the first step into the future of microgrids.

  1. Here would be proposed a future microgrid as follows;
    Solar or wind power and quick-start generator
    DC interconnection with a flywheel
    AC inverter
    AC grid

    To get a stable power supply ,no AC interconnection system should be applied to the grids.

  2. When we develop and deploy novel technology by which to bore “deep enough, cheap enough” to profitably access Deep (6-10 km) Hot Dry Rock Geothermal (DHDRG) energy, we will be able to supply all electricity, district heating and cooling, hydrogen fuel, and energy-source industrial feedstocks via micro- and mini-grids supplied by DHDRG plants.
    > Need more of these ? Add DHDRG plants as modules.
    > Storage is free: leave heat in the groound until needed.
    > No need for new, costly, hard-to-permit electric transmission lines to bring wnd and solar from distant sources with rich (high intensity, large geographic area) variable energy resources (VER’s)
    > Fewer new large wind, solar, and wind + solar plants will be needed
    > DHDRG energy is benign, baseload, firm and dispatchable, inexhaustible, and nearly ubiquitous on Earth.
    We are funding two research projects to discover the optimum allocation of markets and capex among Grid and Hydrogen-based energy systems, at microgrid to continental scales. May we email you our memo advising these projects on scale, scope, and horizon ? Contact me at:
