Join Us This Week for Microgrid 2023 in Anaheim, California!

May 15, 2023
Microgrid 2023 is where the companies, communities and organizations seeking microgrids come to meet the innovators and visionaries bringing the technology to the market.

Microgrid 2023 kicks off this week in Anaheim California with an all-star roster of speakers, ready to take a deep dive into the fast-growing microgrid sector.

We chose California because it is among the most active microgrid markets in the world, one that serves as a prime example of why microgrids are a vital technology in an age of climate change.

Californians now live in a state of energy insecurity because of wildfire-related electricity shutoffs and power capacity shortfalls. As a result, more businesses, institutions, communities and households are taking control of their energy with microgrids. 

Microgrids ensure the lights stay on, the electricity keeps flowing, and the economy stays open.

Why attend Microgrid 2023?

Hosted by Microgrid Knowledge, the world’s largest news site dedicated to all things microgrid, this is the annual event for the microgrid industry. It is where the companies, communities and organizations seeking microgrids come to meet the innovators and visionaries bringing the technology to the market.

The two-day event will offer interactive sessions, workshops, networking and our largest trade show floor yet.

Microgrid 2023 will help you:

—Learn about the energy, financial and sustainability benefits that microgrids offer your facility — and society as a whole.

—Gain insight into business models, financing and government incentives with a special emphasis this year on the US Inflation Reduction Act.

—Find out how to choose technology and development partners for your microgrid project.

—Find prospects and partners through an array of networking opportunities.

Who should attend? 

The Microgrid Knowledge annual conference is the largest microgrid gathering in the world. Those who attend are:

—Businesses, institutions and communities curious about how microgrids can benefit them.

—Innovators, developers, utilities, technology and engineering firms working in the space — or considering doing so.
