Project developers are in search of microgrid financing; financiers are in search of investment-grade projects. Microgrid 2020 Global offers a platform to bring the two together in the Microgrid Financing Connection.

Launched at Microgrid 2018 in Chicago, the popular match-making program is being continued for Microgrid 2020 Global, a free, virtual conference to be hosted by Microgrid Knowledge, November 17-19.

If you’re a project developer, you can participate by completing the pre-screening application form. Your project will be reviewed by microgrid technology companies and project financiers. Applicants selected will be invited to meet privately with investors.

Pitch sessions with financiers

During a 30-minute pitch session, project developers will have an opportunity to describe their plans to the financiers and learn more about their investment requirements.

Microgrid Knowledge welcomes applications from institutions, commercial and industrial businesses, utilities, communities, real estate developers, government entities and others that are developing microgrids.

To participate in the Microgrid Finance Connection complete the form here.

A content-rich event, Microgrid 2020 Global also will feature three days of panel discussions, presentations, interviews, live audience Q&A, and a virtual exhibit hall and networking.

A special educational session, “Microgrid Financing and Energy-as-a-Service,” will be offered 3:30-4:30 pm ET on Tuesday November 17, featuring speakers from Sapling Financial, Scale Microgrid and Siemens.
