MICROGRID GLOBAL SUMMIT
Location: Henry Samueli School of Engineering, Univeristy of California, Irvine
A colloquium is:
A conference with a collection of tutorials and topics that engage discussion from a well-informed, but not necessarily specialized, audience.
ICEPAG adopts this emphasis in order to strike a balance between industry and academia, students and practicing professionals, and tutorials and professional presentations.
ICEPAG 2018: Microgrid Global Summit
The need to increase grid resiliency and reliability -- as well as the desire to integrate sustainable energy resources and extend access to basic energy services -- is driving interest in Microgrids around the world.
Commercial and industrial end users, off-grid and remote communities, and those with special needs for highly reliable, highly secure energy sources are looking to Microgrids as a critical tool for enhancing the performance of the electric grid.
The 2018 Microgrid Global Summit brings together experts from Industry, Government, and Academia from around the world to examine these issues and share critical, cutting edge information about real-world, on-the-ground Microgrid deployments that are pushing the envelope of energy reliability, quality, and accessibility.
To capture an integrated view of clean energy systems more effectively than any other forum, the Microgrid Global Summit also addresses:
The Microgrid Global Summit is intended for industrial, utility, agency, and consulting professionals who wish to meet the Microgrid opportunity head-on. This includes investor owned, municipal, and co-op energy utilities in major metropolitan areas around the world, as well as in rural and remote or off-grid environments, grid equipment providers, and agencies engaged in the regulation and technology development of microgrids.
The discussions will also be particularly relevant to Microgrid project developers and commercial or industrial end users who are planning a deployment or looking to optimize their current systems. Energy providers in the developing world who seek to make power accessibility a reality to local populations will also benefit greatly from the Summit.
Finally, networking and information sharing will be of key interest to regulators, public policy professionals, technology developers, system integrators, investors, urban planners, and others who wish to understand the potential and challenges currently surrounding Microgrid systems.
The Colloquium is also intended for professionals or students from industry, government or academia who are seeking to remain on the cutting edge of the clean energy paradigm shift. This includes stakeholders involved in:
Lastly, the networking and information sharing will be of key interest to regulators, public policy professionals, researchers, technology developers, system integrators, investors, urban planners, and others who wish to understand the potential and challenges currently associated with the generation or utilization of clean energy.
