Will COVID-19 Impact Microgrid Policy Progress?
From smart city programs to state incentives to federal infrastructure proposals, government entities are exploring changes that lend themselves to microgrid development. In this video, we’ll look at the policies and programs that are shaping the microgrid industry, including some of the recent wins, challenges, and opportunities under consideration. We’ll also explore the broader impact of COVID-19 on the future of microgrid development. Will economic fallout from COVID-19 hasten or delay these programs? What’s next for microgrid policy?
Matt Roberts, Director of Strategic Growth and Development for Microgrid Knowledge, serves as the moderator for this session.
This video was recorded during Microgrids as a Recovery Tool During Social and Economic Disruption, a three-day virtual conference held in June of 2020. The conference featured opportunities for businesses, institutions, communities, and homeowners to learn how microgrid technology can aid society during periods of disruption – from pandemics to storms to economic downturns. The conference also featured a number of real world examples that showed microgrids in action.
With more than 50 speakers and 15 different sessions, the event covered three key topic areas:
- The Health, Economic and Environmental Influences Giving Rise to Microgrids
- Who Microgrids Serve: From Business to Education to the Clean Energy Revolution
- How Microgrids Reduce Costs, Cut Carbon and Ensure Power Supply in Tough Times & Places
Although this was previously recorded, you’ll find many of the examples and insights are timeless in their strategic value.
