6th National Microgrid Conference
Thanks to our co-panelists for participating in the Community Resiliency Panel, April 6, in Boston.
BRIDGING THE GAP BETWEEN YESTERDAY’S LEGACY GRID
AND TOMORROW’S SMART GRID
The Grid is undergoing a key transformation because of (a) aging infrastructure, (b) increasing frequency and duration of blackouts, and (c) scheduled closings of coal and nuclear power plants. Emerging regulatory, political and technological changes will allow more distributed generation and Microgrids. Experts from industry and government will explore opportunities for making the Grid smarter, greener and increasingly robust. Attendees will learn how to: • Identify where in the Distribution Grid is the best place to • Overcome obstacles to integrate Microgrids into the local install a Microgrid distribution network • Benefit from the recent changes in Standards and Regulations
