Why Should you Attend the Summit?

  • RSC professional forums offer you the rare opportunity to truly partake in senior level, off the record, in depth dialogue and discussions towards the topics at hand.
  • We bring together a diverse group of leaders, innovators, implementers and end-users to engage in two days of detailed, moderated plenary and panel discussions that are driven by actionable take aways for all in attendance.
  • Seating is limited! Our forum invokes the feel of a 'Town Hall' format (round table seating), where you are offered the ability to help shape the topics at hand by offering your perspective, ideas and questions during the sessions.
  • Ample networking time is built in to both days to allow for you to meet and engage all in attendance in an efficient and effective manner.
  • Join us and walk away with knowledge gained, and collaborations established as leaders in the community come together to build out the near future of microgrids and DERS.
