About Us

The Distributed Energy Conference is the power generation industry’s foremost event about distributed generation, bringing together utility-scale electricity providers with power generators utilizing distributed energy resources (DERs), including commercial and industrial facilities, cooperatives, and private enterprise. The conference focuses on real-life applications of DERs, providing insight and information about renewable energy sources such as solar and wind, energy storage, microgrids, combined heat and power (CHP), generators, microturbines, and hybrid systems utilizing a variety of technologies. The event also delves into the business and financial aspects of distributed generation, including the emerging world of blockchain.

Overview:

Distributed energy resources continue to grow and have taken a lead role in the power generation industry. This conference brings together utility executives, power plant operators, and grid managers with power generators using DERs, including commercial and industrial (C&I) end-users, enabling honest discussion of the evolving world of distributed generation. Utilities in recent years have overhauled their business models for many reasons, including mandates for renewable energy. Many energy consumers are now prosumers, producing their own power and taking charge of their own energy systems, from production to consumption. Municipalities, cooperatives, C&I facilities, private enterprise, and investment firms all have entered the world of power generation. That means today’s energy landscape includes entities that can aggregate enough capacity to take on the generation profile of a conventional power plant, along with generators operating on a smaller scale. This event allows delegates from across the value chain to gain insights into the technical, operational, business case, regulatory, and financial aspects of this expanding segment of the power industry.

Drawing on the experience and 135+ year history of POWER magazine, and two decades of success in bringing together power generation professionals with the ELECTRIC POWER conference, the Distributed Energy Conference (DEC) provides a platform for power industry executives and operations specialists to exchange insights and ideas. DEC offers a wealth of information about distributed generation through a conference program and sponsor opportunity prospectus focused on commercial, industrial, and utility applications; business case strategies; regulatory issues; and integration challenges. A solutions-focused approach provides opportunities for attendees, from C-suite executives to operators, to meet those who can facilitate business connections around these technologies, including renewables, energy storage, microgrids, generators, microturbines, CHP, hybrid systems, blockchain, and energy efficiency, along with reliability and resiliency and grid integration.
