Microgrid Knowledge seeks speakers for “Microgrid California: Keeping the Power Flowing During Grid Disruption,” a one-day educational forum in the San Francisco Bay Area to help microgrid customers overcome challenges they may face in securing this valuable technology.
If you’d like to speak at this conference, we ask that you carefully read this call for speakers because of the specificity of our request. If you’ve spoken at previous Microgrid Knowledge events, you will find this one to be different in format and content.
Microgrid California is designed to be a problem-solving forum for businesses, institutions, communities, utilities and government facilities in the state that want to install microgrids, but face obstacles, be they technological, engineering, financial, regulatory, risk-related, social, or informational.
To that end, the event will feature panel discussions where microgrid customers describe their challenges. Microgrid experts, invited by Microgrid Knowledge, will also be on the panel to advise on strategies to overcome these challenges. Sharing this information will help others in the audience with similar problems or questions, as well as others in the broader Microgrid Knowledge community who will learn about these discussions via video, articles and white papers published post event.
We are seeking speakers in two categories:
Microgrid customers may come from any sector, but we will give preference to those that work within industries particularly important to the California economy, such as agriculture, technology/data centers, higher education, transportation/shipping/storage, healthcare, tourism, manufacturing and government.
Application Deadline: August 15, 2021
Notification: September 1, 2021
Applications will be reviewed as they arrive and selected on a first-come-first-serve basis, so we encourage you to apply early.
Microgrid 2021: The World Awakens to Microgrids is a four-week event designed to educate businesses, institutions and communities about microgrids.
