Microgrid 2019 Call for Case Studies & Presentations

Microgrid 2019: Shaping the New Electric Grid seeks case studies and presentations that feature innovative microgrids, nanogrids and virtual power plants, including (but not limited to) those projects that act as non-wires alternatives or serve community energy aggregations.

We welcome case studies and presentations that promote understanding of business and financing models, policy or regulation, products and markets, or technical and operational design.

This is a highly competitive process; last year’s conference attracted three times more speakers than openings.

Preference will be given to proposals that:

  1. Offer an engaging 15-minute talk (not including Q&A). We encourage use of Ted-Talk techniques to engage the audience. (Please check out this video. Note, in particular, Point 4: Make Your Idea Worth Sharing.)
  2. Provide content that is new and has not been presented at multiple other conferences
  3. Include customer participation. If you are presenting a project, we are more likely to accept your application if your customer joins you on stage to provide perspective.
  4. Appeal to one or more segments of the audience, expected to be C-suite energy executives, project development teams, technology providers, financiers, engineers, regulators and policymakers, and potential energy project customers from such industries as real estate development, commercial and industrial enterprises, the military, government, education and healthcare.

Please complete your application by submitting the form below by January 31, 2019. Microgrid Knowledge editors will review all applications and notify those chosen in late February.
