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

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

Five floors of conference space

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.
