5th Microgrid Global Innovation Forum | Sept. 4-6, 2017 | Barcelona
Optimizing the business model, performance, and integration of hybrid renewable energy microgrids in off-grid and grid-tied environments
The microgrid opportunity around the world continues to grow significantly. One recent report forecasts a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) for the market of 12% between 2016-2022, while a second projects it to reach $35 billion by 2025 with a stunning 20.7% CAGR.* The reasons for this include the falling costs of solar energy, advances in energy storage, the drive to mitigate climate change, and the cost savings associated with minimizing fossil fuels in remote generation systems. In addition, microgrids will play a central role in bringing electrification to rural and developing regions in which access to reliable, clean and affordable energy is a high priority.

Barcelona
The 5th edition of the Microgrid Global Innovation Forum, September 4-6, 2017 in Barcelona, focuses on microgrid advances, case studies and applications in EMEA, Asia-Pacific, and Latin America. The emphasis is on maximizing the effective use of renewable and distributed energy resources, refining the positive business model for a range of microgrid deployments, and sharing real-world case studies in both grid-tied and off-grid/remote environments. The event will focus on:

  • Microgrid feasibility, design, and implementation
  • Refining the business case for off-grid, remote, and island microgrids
  • Solar + storage advances
  • Project financing and investor perspectives
