National Conference on Microgrids

, Boston , MA , United States

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 the 13th & 14th April of 2021. 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.

Featuring an Exclusive Tour of the Sterling Municipal Light Department's Award-Winning Microgrid

In addition to the main two day event, during the afternoon of Monday 12th April 2021 a limited number of conference delegates will receive a unique opportunity to visit Sterling Municipal Light Department's Innovative Microgrid Facility.

There is no extra charge to join the site visit, but spaces are strictly limited and allocated to conference delegates on a first-come, first-served basis, so it is highly recommended to book early to guarantee availability.

Join us in Boston to exchange your point of view with your peers and engage in excellent networking opportunities.

The Great Lockdowns

We are doing everything to ensure that all our events go ahead as advertised, returning to the much-missed and valuable face-to-face interaction as soon as possible. In order to ensure the events are delivered as safely as possible, venues are chosen and procedures are adjusted in line with the relevant local and regulations and guidelines.

These have been exceptionally challenging times with very fast-moving updates. As we get closer to an event we look at each one individually, paying careful heed to local regulations, but without ignoring the international situation. Whatever happens, We will safeguard the investments that attendees have made by either automatically moving it to the new dates of the event or a full credit will be provided for use when booking a future ACI event.
