Microgrid 2017 follows Microgrid Knowledge’s successful 2016 event in New York City where energy leaders charted the future course for the rising microgrid industry.

Join us to see how far microgrids have come in one year — and where the industry will head next.

This year’s event 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.

Discounts are now available for those who register early.

The event will be held at the Boston Park Plaza. Registration details, including early bird and group discounts, are available on the Microgrid 2017 site. For information about sponsoring the event or exhibiting, contact Kevin Normandeau, [email protected], (508) 259-8570.
