2018 Microgrids West Conference / Spokane (USA)

Wednesday, 29 August, 2018 to Thursday, 30 August, 2018
2018 Microgrids West Conference / Spokane (USA)

Microgrids are getting a lot of attention, not just to support national security, but also to provide more resilient power supply at other types of facilities, and to allow for increased penetration of renewables. Agricultural complexes, academic campuses, health care centers, military bases, and even corporate grounds are exploring microgrid options to secure continuous reliability and quality of power supply. This has spurred creation of new technologies and control mechanisms that allow these systems to operate in a grid-connected mode and also independently for extended periods of time. They also support the modernization of older infrastructures and the containment of costs.

Why Attend This Conference
  • This industry is highly fractured with implementers and customers alike struggling to find repeatable business models that make financial sense
  • While each implementation is unique due to the variety of legacy equipment and brownfield resources, the process to develop a successful microgrid is highly repeatable

This conference series has been very informative and popular, following the success of last year’s conferences in Sonoma, California and Boston, Massachusetts. This is the second year that ACI is producing two Microgrid conferences, with our other conference for 2018 taking place in Charlotte, North Carolina.
