About Us

The Distributed Energy Conference is the only event that brings together utility-scale electricity providers with other power generators, including commercial and industrial facilities, cooperatives, and private enterprise. It focuses on real-life applications and the business and financial aspects of distributed generation, including renewables, energy storage, microgrids, and combined heat and power.


Distributed generation resources are uniquely suited for scale, bringing utility companies together with other power generators including municipalities, cooperatives, private enterprise, and commercial and industrial facilities. That means today’s energy landscape includes entities that can aggregate enough capacity to take on the generation profile of a conventional power plant. This scalability opens an opportunity for delegates from across the value chain to gain insights into the technical, operational, business case, regulatory, and financial aspects of this rapidly expanding segment of the power industry.

Drawing on the experience and 135+ year history of POWER magazine, along with two decades of success in bringing together power generation professionals with the ELECTRIC POWER conference, our team is launching the Distributed Energy Conference (DEC), providing a platform for power industry executives and operational specialists with hands-on experience to exchange insights and ideas. DEC offers a fresh look at distributed generation through a conference program and sponsor opportunity prospectus focused on commercial, industrial, and utility applications; business case strategies; regulatory issues; and grid 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 disruptive technologies, covering a range of applications including renewables, energy storage, microgrids, and combined heat and power.
