A picture may be worth a thousand words, it’s been said, and no doubt that our 25 or so photo highlights shared here will somewhat convey the sights and warm human interactions found at last year’s Microgrid Knowledge Conference in Anaheim.
So we won’t bore you with 25,000 words when maybe 200 and these images will do. We wanted to quickly share this slideshow to remind you of the great conversations, laughs, and last but not least, insightful sessions which happened when we last celebrated the microgrid industry together.
These conferences, such as the upcoming Microgrid 2024 this April 22-24 in Baltimore at the Marriott Waterfront, are a pivotal time for reconnection, networking and sharing of best practices and lessons learned on the way to the revolution in energy, not far from where latter stages of America’s fight to retain its own independence happened. (The Star-Spangled Banner, ever heard of it?).
In these photo memories from "Microgrid 2023: Lights On" in Anaheim, we see friends from Ameresco, PXiSE Energy Solutions, Spirae, Schneider Electric, FuelCell Energy, Scale Microgrid and the U.S. Department of Energy, among many others. Most or maybe all of these friends will return for Microgrid 2024: The Revolution in Energy at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront, while many new invitees also are making plans to arrive from microgrid firms, state policy commissions and utilities from throughout the nation.
Amazing things are certainly happening in microgrids, but people are always the key. Smiling faces, fully engaging conversations, shared professional objectives and sometimes just plain old fun with old and new friends. Decentralization of energy doesn’t mean decoupling of human interaction, no one is an island, even if they’re talking about islanding microgrids.
So we’ll stop at about 300 words and share these 25-plus snapshots from Microgrid 2023. We’ll be adding to this in April in Baltimore, hoping you can join us for Microgrid 2024.
