Rescheduled / Postponed event: National Conference on Microgrids

10th edition

Boston, MA, United States

Our National Conference on Microgrids in Boston, MA, originally scheduled to take place on 18-19 March, has been postponed. The conference will be rescheduled for this fall and we will confirm the exact dates shortly.

Microgrids are rapidly becoming more popular across the USA. Not only have they provided a source of reliable backup power in emergency situations, they are helping reduce costs as well as damage to the environment through renewable energy.

The discussions this year will address these new revelations happening in the industry and provide answers to help microgrid owners and utility companies grow even further and even into new avenues such as electric vehicles and power trading.

Our 10th National Conference on Microgrids will be taking place in Boston, USA on the 18th - 19th March 2020. The two day event will consist of a number of informative presentations followed by interactive Q&A sessions and panel discussions, bringing together key industry stakeholders including utility companies, microgrid owners, project developers, energy technology providers, renewable energy providers, relevant consultants, associations and governmental bodies.
