Continuing the Transition Towards a Distributed Energy System. What will it take to get there? From philosophical to technical to practical application, our panelists will discuss the current state of the market, policy hurdles, complex modeling systems, funding challenges and more. Which markets are seeing more growth – microgrids or larger grids? Domestic or international? Will grid defection in communities drive policy change? How do modeling systems inform decision-making? Are VC’s investing in grid technologies? What opportunities are there for innovation and entrepreneurship?
