Following its sold-out event this week in California, Microgrid Knowledge today announced that Microgrid 2022 will be in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, June 1-2.

Following its sold-out event this week in California, Microgrid Knowledge today announced that Microgrid 2022 will be held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, June 1-2.

The annual industry event is expected to attract several hundred participants, among them businesses, institutions and government entities that are exploring microgrid adoption, along with utilities, microgrid developers, technology vendors, engineering and design firms, investors and others.

The event will feature the kind of thought-provoking and animating content that Microgrid Knowledge has come to be known for, presented over two days through panel discussions, presentations, on-stage interviews and workshops.

Main stage forums will highlight big picture energy and microgrid themes, while breakout sessions will focus on detailed educational topics. Participants also will have the opportunity to participate in a pre-conference workshop May 31 on government policy and regulation, organized by Think Microgrid, a policy advocacy and education division of Microgrid Knowledge.

Microgrid 2022 will also offer virtual microgrid tours, extensive networking opportunities and a trade show floor where microgrid customers can explore the latest in distributed energy technologies.

Microgrid Knowledge is bringing its annual industry gathering back to the Northeast because the area is an early epicenter of microgrid activity that has continued to grow as climate disasters mount, and more and more facility managers and communities seek greater energy reliability, sustainability and cost savings.

Philadelphia, in particular, has been a marquee city for microgrids because it is home to one of the most advanced commercial and industrial microgrids, located at the Philadelphia Navy Yard.

Microgrid Knowledge will issue a call for speakers for Microgrid 2022 in December. Subscribe to the free Microgrid Knowledge Newsletter for notification of its release.

Microgrid 2022, to be held at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown, will be the eighth microgrid event hosted by Microgrid Knowledge, the largest independent news and information site for all things microgrid. The web platform’s most recent live event, Microgrid California, featured Congressman Jimmy Panetta, author of the MICROGRID Act. The regional education forum drew a sold-out audience to the San Francisco Bay Area.
