Cummins is proud to sponsor the Microgrid Knowledge: Microgrid 2020 Global Virtual Conference.
After the success of the Microgrid Knowledge June virtual conference and due to precautions taking place during the COVID-19 pandemic, the free, three-day event will be a hosted fully virtually between November 17-19, 2020.
Microgrid 2020 Global Conference will bring together expert speakers, government and industry decision-makers to share their perspective and experience in driving microgrid adoption in North America and worldwide. The three-day virtual event will lay the groundwork for a decade of microgrid growth. How fast and how far can microgrids grow to shape the energy future? The time has come to set the course for the next decade.
Attendees will have the opportunity to:
- Discover the latest microgrid opportunities, new business models, advances in technology, and trends in financing and policy
- Learn why and how a microgrid can serve your business, institution, community or utility through real-world examples
- Network, meet privately and tour virtual exhibits with prospects and partners
- Join a unique opportunity to be among those leading the way to 2030
In addition to sponsoring the event, we will be contributing to the content as two Cummins Inc. microgrid experts will join panels to discuss the initial steps in developing a microgrid and the growing innovation in microgrid controller technology. David Matuseski, Engineering Director of New Technology, will present as part of the session titled “Microgrid Project Lifecycle: From Inquiry through Operation” November 17, 2020, 17:00 EST. Hassan Obeid, Systems and Controls Global Technical Advisor, will present as part of a session titled “Software and Technology Innovation” November 19, 2020, 14:00 EST.
Microgrid Project Lifecycle: From Inquiry through Operation
November 17, 2020, 17:00 EST
What type of microgrid best suits your facility? How do you determine proper sizing and generation sources? Will you benefit from CHP, renewables and energy storage? What kind of controller will offer the most value? What data and analytics are required to answer these questions accurately? Attend the Microgrid Project Lifecycle session and live Q&A to find the answers.
