Microgrid Knowledge today announced the date and venue of the next annual microgrid industry conference, Microgrid 2020.

The international event — the world’s largest microgrid industry conference — will be held June 2-3 in Philadelphia, Pa., situated in the Northeast corridor’s vibrant microgrid market and home to the Philadelphia Navy Yard, one of North America’s most advanced commercial microgrid projects.

Designed for those who want to learn about the latest in the fast-growing industry, Microgrid 2020 will mark the event’s fifth year. 

Showcase, learn, connect

Hosted by the largest news site devoted to all things microgrid, the conference series creates a venue to advance microgrids and distributed energy resources by showcasing the latest in technology, ideas and government policy. Microgrid buyers can explore the possibilities, all in one place, and learn how microgrids can help them achieve their energy reliability, sustainability and budgetary goals.

Microgrid 2020 also offers microgrid providers, large and small, the opportunity to make new industry connections and re-establish partnerships.

Five floors of conference space

With five floors of conference space at the DoubleTree Hilton in Philadelphia’s city center, Microgrid 2020’s venue allows for more content, speakers and networking opportunities, as Microgrid Knowledge prepares for what it expects to be its largest event yet.

The event will continue the popular programs that characterize the conference series, including the Microgrid Finance Connection — a platform to bring together project developers in search of financing with financiers looking for investment grade projects. 

In addition, the Microgrid Greater Good Award program will enter is second year. The award acknowledges microgrids that bring societal and environmental benefits to communities worldwide.

The event is specifically designed for: 

  • The thought leaders who are shaping and guiding the microgrid industry
  • Innovators, developers, utilities, and technology & engineering firms
  • Businesses, institutions and communities curious about how microgrids can benefit them
  • Energy financiers
  • Policymakers, regulators, researchers and advocates
