Featured Topics

DISTRICT ENERGY

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.

CAMPUS ENERGY

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.

COMMERCIAL & INDUSTRIAL

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.

COMMUNITY SOLAR


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.

ENERGY STORAGE

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

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.

FINANCE

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.

GRID MANAGEMENT

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.

& Focus

A Generational Change is Underway

Distributed power generation 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. Join us virtually as we meet and collaborate on the change underway.
