Microgrid 2015: Economically Integrating Storage and Renewables for Resilience, Grid Stability, and Remote Power is HOMER Energy's 3rd annual microgrid event, following our successful events of Barcelona, Spain in 2014 and Cancun, Mexico in 2013. Microgrid 2015 is the place to be seen and heard by people who understand that microgrids are more than a nice theory - microgrids have been in place for decades in many parts of the world. Now their benefits are becoming recognized by the grid-connected world as well. This year the focus is on storage, which has seen a global surge in interest and capability, and on the Australia, Asia, and Pacific markets, but as always we anticipate a truly international crowd.

Energy providers of all varieties are exploring the use of microgrids to incorporate renewable power resources, reduce CO2 emissions, and achieve energy security and independence. The remote, island, and off-grid systems sector is the largest microgrid segment worldwide, but the grid-connected segment is exploding as the solar-storage industry takes off, and the benefits become increasingly cost effective..

Organizations looking to realize the benefits of distributed renewable energy resources are seeking reality-based guidance on the design, implementation, and operation of cost-effective microgrid systems. The HOMER Energy microgrid conference series has consistently focused on how to gain these benefits.

Microgrid 2015: a two-day program that carefully examines the business models, optimal technology mix, and critical steps for successfully deploying microgrid systems in remote, island, and grid-connected environments. The emphasis is on refining the business model as well as effectively planning, designing, and deploying microgrids.

Microgrid 2015 will bring together government officials, project and technology developers, system owners and utilities, and other energy professionals from across the industry for in-depth information sharing and networking.

Don't miss this opportunity to:

  • Refine your business model and technology strategy for your microgrid scenario.
  • Learn from industry leaders about what works and what doesn't in implementing an microgrid solutions
  • Examine the experiences and lessons learned to date from leading remote microgrid projects around the world
  • Network with key technology innovators and solution providers to identify the correct strategy
  • Meet with project owners, developers, and financial professionals who are looking to deploy microgrid projects around the world
  • Deepen your ability to use the HOMER software tool for designing and optimizing your specific project

A Focused Educational and Networking Opportunity


The Microgrid Deployment Workshop offers an in-depth, methodical examination of the key imperatives for implementing cost effective microgrids within grid-tied, remote, and off-grid environments. The program is closely tailored to walk attendees through the end-to-end process of planning and deploying a successful project.

Registrants will come away with a concrete understanding of the best practices, design tools, and technology strategies for deploying microgrid systems -- reinforced by case study presentations of leading deployments from around the world. Ample time is reserved for networking with fellow project owners and industry colleagues.
