With many eyes on New York and their ambitious plans for a cleaner, more resilient and affordable energy industry under the Reforming Energy Vision (REV) strategy, the questions for many of us include:
1. How big of an opportunity are microgrids?
2. How can we finance and commercialize microgrids?
3. Where do we advance storage and control technologies to deploy microgrids?
4. What sort of regulations and market policies will support microgrid deployment?
5. What lessons can we learn from successful global microgrid projects?
HOMER Energy selected New York as the host city for the 4th Annual HOMER International Microgrid Conference to answer these questions and more. This conference offers in-depth examination of the key drivers for implementing microgrids, whether they interconnect with a utility grid or remain off-grid, or they are located in remote areas or in urban areas. A unique aspect of this conference will be presentations of successful microgrids from around the world, with discussions of how to apply the lessons of those case studies to grid-connected microgrids. The program is closely tailored to guide attendees through the process of planning and deploying a successful microgrid project.
