Registration Opens for Microgrid 2020 Global, a Microgrid Gathering Like No Other

Sept. 29, 2020
Microgrid Knowledge today opened registration for Microgrid 2020 Global, a free, multimedia event that promises to be the microgrid industry’s largest worldwide gathering yet — and its most inventive.

Microgrid Knowledge is now accepting registration for Microgrid 2020 Global, a free, multimedia event that promises to be the microgrid industry’s largest worldwide gathering yet — and its most inventive.

Learn about the latest microgrid opportunities through news-broadcast style interviews with energy leaders and policymakers, livestream panel discussions, and online tours of operating microgrids. Ask questions in real time, attend exclusive ‘birds of a feather’ networking sessions, and engage with the companies making it all happen in our exhibit hall.

The interactive conference will be held over three days, November 17-19.

“This is our second virtual event, but it is very different from our first, which we held in June. Microgrid 2020 Global is not simply a conference that has been moved over to a virtual webinar platform. Instead, our team sat down and re-imagined what it means to bring an industry together virtually,” said Elisa Wood, editor-in-chief of Microgrid Knowledge. “We’ve designed an event that is not a substitute for a live conference, but something much bigger and better.”

Microgrid 2020 Global offers a platform and an agenda with something for everyone — from the seasoned microgrid expert looking to share and hone knowledge to the companies, communities and institutions researching microgrids for the first time.

Kevin Normandeau, publisher of Microgrid Knowledge, noted that the publication’s mission is to advance the adoption of microgrids. “The virtual conference experience, with its worldwide reach, expands our ability to accomplish this goal. More people who are researching microgrids can attend, since they are unencumbered by budgetary constraints. There is no registration fee, no plane fare, no hotel costs. We invite you to take in the world of microgrids from your home or office, at no charge, with thousands of your peers from around the globe.”

The agenda begins Day 1 with an exploration of the current state of microgrid innovation. Day 2 will look at what the future promises, and Day 3 will focus on what the microgrid industry needs to do to fulfill that promise. The event will culminate with an effort to reach a consensus on industry goals for the next decade based on input from live polling and deliberations by the microgrid industry’s top thought leaders.

Agenda details and speakers will be announced in the coming weeks. A limit exists on the number of attendees who can participate on the platform. So we encourage you to register soon for this free event. Microgrid Knowledge’s virtual conference in June attracted more than 4,000 participants, the record to date for a microgrid gathering.

Registration details are available on the Microgrid 2020 Global website.
