March 10, 2017
Microgrid Knowledge, the International District Energy Association and the Microgrid Resources Coalition today issued a call for papers for their Microgrid 2017 conference.

Submissions are due March 17 for papers to be presented at Microgrid 2017, a conference hosted by Microgrid Knowledge, the International District Energy Association and the Microgrid Resources Coalition.

To be held in Boston, the November 6-8 conference promises to be the defining microgrid event of the year. Microgrid 2017 follows up Microgrid Knowledge’s successful 2016 event in New York City where energy leaders charted the future course for the rising microgrid industry.

“I feel like I am speaking to the all-star team of the microgrid industry.” — Micah Kotch, former director of the NY Prize, speaking at the Microgrid 2016 Conference in NYC

Today’s call for papers seek presentations for Microgrid 2017 that address the rapidly changing microgrid landscape in the U.S and internationally. Those interested in presenting should submit abstracts of not more than 75 words by 5 p.m. ET on March 17.

Participants may offer papers for conference tracks on technology and innovation, policy and regulation, and business or market development.

Conference organizers will give preference to case studies and real world examples that include minimal commercial or promotional content. Weight also will be given to new concepts and strategies likely to evoke audience discussion and advance industry understanding.

Microgrid 2017 will feature prominent industry and policy speakers, regulators and government agencies, lively panel discussions, technical sessions, vendor booths, tours of Boston-area microgrids and extensive networking opportunities.

In addition to having a strong industry presence, the event is designed to attract a range of energy customers who are exploring microgrids. These include universities, hospitals, pharmaceutical companies, manufacturers, data centers, office park developers and others seeking greater energy reliability, efficiency and cost management.
