Featured Topics


District energy systems are an efficient way to heat and cool multiple buildings in a specific area. Systems are in use to power downtown business districts, industrial complexes and other commercial areas, and to serve hospitals, military bases, and more. Learn how some cities are utilizing district energy to serve their businesses.


College and university campuses are facing challenges when it comes to their energy costs. They are dealing with limited budgets, while looking at an energy future that involves moving away from fossil fuels and toward renewables. Campuses want to align with sustainability goals, cutting their greenhouse gas emissions and minimizing their carbon footprint. We’ll hear from schools that have developed ways to generate power to enable reliability and resilience while controlling costs.


Businesses that need to minimize or eliminate power outages, and want control of their energy costs, increasingly turn to combined heat and power (CHP) systems and on-site power systems. Hear from commercial and industrial end-users about their experience with CHP installations and on-site systems to power their operations.


Residential and business customers for years have recognized the value of rooftop solar. But not everyone has access to that power. Enter community solar, which provides households and businesses the economic and environmental benefits of solar power—and provides utilities a way to get electricity from solar power to areas that otherwise couldn’t receive it.


Analysts have said energy storage could be a $600-billion-plus industry in the next two decades. It also holds the promise of dramatically increasing the adoption of renewables, with an ability to store excess wind and solar power. Many solar and wind projects, in addition to microgrids, are incorporating storage into their design. This session looks at the impact of energy storage on the power landscape and its role in distributed generation.


Microgrids offer an “all of the above” approach to distributed generation, incorporating a variety of technologies into their design. Learn how microgrids are designed and operated, including their use of renewable power sources, battery energy storage, diesel and gas generator sets, microturbines, and fuel cells.


Experts in financing distributed power generation, including commercial and industrial projects and utility-scale renewables, will discuss how to secure support for your project, whether your goal is to enter into a power purchase agreement with a utility, sell your power to a business, or provide power to your own commercial or industrial enterprise.


A virtual power plant is a network of decentralized, medium-scale power generating units such as wind farms, solar parks, and combined heat and power (CHP) units, as well as flexible power consumers and storage systems. The virtual power plant (VPP) model of DER aggregation and optimization is spreading around the globe to respond to the need for increased grid reliability and to lower the cost of renewable energy.

There is a common misperception that “green energy” appeals mostly to liberals. However, at least some of the facts don’t support that view. A case in point can be found in the rooftop solar sector. “It’s not Republican or Democratic. It’s really American. It’s free enterprise,” Jayson Waller, founder and CEO of POWERHOME SOLAR, said […]

EY Research Highlights New Opportunities for Utilities

Demand for electricity from the residential sector rose during the first several months of the global coronavirus pandemic, as workers stayed home and students studied remotely. Researchers, using data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), said the second quarter of 2020 saw a 10% rise in residential electricity usage compared to the same months […]
