In this video, Microgrid Knowledge editors host a discussion about how microgrids, distributed energy and electrification help shape a new, more climate-friendly grid. We’ll look at the imperative to act, what lies ahead, and how the microgrid industry will rise to the climate change challenge. How fast and how far will the industry grow by 2030? What will be the major drivers of growth and what threatens to derail industry acceleration? If we know where we’re going and what we need to accomplish, we can better prepare and plan for how we get there. The industry is bullish and industry leaders see a bright future for electrification and creating a new grid.

This session is moderated by Matt Roberts, Director of Strategic Growth for Microgrid Knowledge.

Featured Speakers include:

Steven DeMott, Senior Manager of Strategic Planning, PECO
