Microgrids as a Recovery Tool During Social and Economic Disruption,” will feature real world examples of microgrids in action for a range of industries and services, among them healthcare, higher education, business, real estate, government, communities, utilities and transportation. Microgrid leaders will discuss the role microgrids play in providing reliable power, reducing energy costs and incorporating more clean energy onto the grid. 

 “The microgrid value proposition has never been stronger as we move into hurricane and wildfire season while also struggling with a worldwide pandemic that underscores our need for reliable power — especially for healthcare facilities, the food supply chain and other critical services,” said Elisa Wood, editor-in-chief of Microgrid Knowledge.

Wood said the conference offers unique opportunities for businesses, institutions, communities and even homeowners to learn about microgrids and ask questions of experts. The audience can interact live with speakers in Q&A sessions following presentations.

Microgrid Knowledge encourages attendees to register early, given that signups are robust. (Register here.) Attendees may sign up for any or all sessions free of charge. 

Some highlights from the agenda include:

  • How to Finance a Microgrid Project in a Post Covid-19 Economy
  • Navigating Dual Disasters: What are the Next Steps for California as it Emerges Out of Covid-19 and into Wildfire Season?
  • Electrifying and Microgridding Transportation Systems: A Natural Pairing
  • Protecting Communities & Vital Services with Smart Microgrids

Microgrid Knowledge has postponed its annual live conference, originally scheduled for June 2-3, to November 18-20 because of COVID-19.

“When we realized that it was necessary to cancel our live conference, we discussed what we could do to serve our audience at this difficult time. We are fortunate to have an online platform and content service with a broad reach. We wanted to make that reach available to as many people as possible, as quickly as possible, and do so without additional charge, ” said Kevin Normandeau, publisher of Microgrid Knowledge.

More details about the event and its agenda are available at Microgrid Knowledge Virtual Conference.
