image 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, although utilities are increasingly interested in exploring grid-tied microgrids as a service offering for key commercial & industrial customers.

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 Microgrid Deployment Workshop - Fall 2014 is 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 off-grid environments. The emphasis is on refining the business model as well as effectively planning, designing, and deploying microgrids.

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

The first day consists of a series of panel sessions that systematically analyze the key steps and requirements for deploying hybrid energy microgrid systems. The second day consists of case studies in the morning and an in-depth, hands-on training session in the afternoon focused on the use of HOMER Energy software for the design of such systems.

Don't miss this opportunity to:

  • Refine your business model and technology strategy for your microgrid scenario.
  • Learn from industry leaders about what works, 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.
