2020 Distributed Energy Conference Call for Papers
POWER magazine continues to explore the rapid growth of decentralized, distributed power generation, which is changing the way electricity is produced and supplied worldwide. It’s literally a generational change—today’s utilities are adapting to a new landscape, with new business models, and learning how to work with customers who today produce their own power.
Our 2020 Distributed Energy Conference, Oct. 19-21 in Chicago, Illinois, will provide new perspectives on the utility-customer relationship, along with discussion of innovative distributed energy technologies such as nuclear microreactors, the rise of energy storage, offshore wind, and growth in commercial and industrial generation.
