The Distributed Energy Conference (DEC) is

the energy industry event where stakeholders, investors, and end-users meet to share their knowledge and exchange ideas through collaboration and conversation as we navigate the technical, operational, financial, business case, and regulatory aspects of initiating and managing small-scale to utility-scale distributed energy projects.

At DEC 2020, you will gain new perspectives on the utility-customer relationship and participate in discussions on new distributed energy technologies such as nuclear microreactors, the rise of energy storage, advancements in wind and solar, and growth in commercial and industrial generation.


In its third year, DEC has quickly become the go-to event for utility executives, power plant operators, grid managers, and power generators using DERs, including commercial and industrial (C&I) end-users.

Hear from Distributed Generation Experts

Gain practical insights from industry leaders on how distributed generation is disrupting the industry and transforming the way power is generated; find out how to get your next project financed; and hear case studies on current community solar projects, successful CHP implementation at C&I power facilities, and district energy systems. There will be interactive sessions with a mix of panels, presenters, and Q&A opportunities that provide a level of insight and forecasting you won’t experience anywhere else.

COVID-19 Precautions and Planning

Currently, we are planning to be live on-site at the Marriott Marquis in Chicago, Illinois. If circumstances beyond our control prevent us from meeting live, you can plan with confidence to attend because the conference will go entirely virtual and will occur over the exact dates planned. We are committed to your security and safety, so rest assured that we are working towards an event that has the health and safety of our attendees as the priority.
