Call for Speakers Application Form

Microgrid Knowledge has designed Microgrid 2021 as a way to educate businesses, institutions and communities about microgrids. Each week will focus on a primary need that microgrids fulfill, offering insight through a lively multimedia virtual platform.

Speaking Opportunities

Opportunities are available to participate in panel discussions, interviews, webinars and Q&As with a live audience. We seek speakers who can engage an audience of potential microgrid customers and others who are new to microgrids. Presentations and discussions should be geared toward sustainability officers and facility managers, business leaders, CEOs, government officials, institutional and community leaders, and other energy decision-makers.

Week 1: Electric Reliability

Week 2: Economical Energy

Week 3: Sustainability

Week 4: Greater Good/Future Impact

Special Considerations

Sessions will typically run about one hour and include either three PowerPoint presentations or a panel discussion with 3-5 speakers. All of the sessions will include a live Q&A with the audience.

A presentation is likely to be accepted if it has not been presented elsewhere. PowerPoint presentations should be no more than 9 minutes (not including Q&A) and include a maximum of 3 slides (not including introductory or contact slides). All presenters and speakers are required to attend a rehearsal session, a prerecording session and a live audience Q&A the day of the event.

There is no charge for attending or presenting at Microgrid 2021. However, all speakers must register by April 1 to hold their place on the agenda.
