Internet of Energy Virtual Summit 2014

Tuesday, December 16th

100% Online

Mackinnon Lawrence, research director at Navigant Research, will discuss The Emerging Internet of Energy: Market Drivers, Growth Opportunities, and Industry Challenges at 9:00 am EST. To schedule a meeting at this event, Please Contact Us.

Renewable and distributed energy resources are driving the de-centralization of energy generation and the migration of intelligence to the network edge. This trend, coupled with the continued rollout of advanced smart grid technologies and smart building energy management devices at the residential and C&I level, is empowering an era in which locally generated and stored energy resources can be dispatched dynamically where and when they are needed. This represents a significant change to the traditional model of one-way energy generation and usage - one which utilities of all varieties must understand and leverage in order to succeed in today's rapidly changing energy ecosystem.

The Internet of Energy Virtual Summit 2014 examines the value proposition, enabling technologies, and dynamic, integrated networks that are empowering the effective control of distributed energy resources. The dynamic interface between distributed generation resources and the expanding cloud of connected devices (including electric vehicles, commercial and residential buildings, offices, electrical devices, appliances, etc.) is the focus of this Virtual Summit -- from distributed embedded systems to power control strategies and strategic business models.

The Internet of Energy Virtual Summit 2014 will play a critical role in harmonizing the grid of the future via advanced analytics, the coordination of microgrids and the orchestration of next-generation virtual power plant entities across multiple stakeholder domains. Join your colleagues for this one-day, focused event as we carefully examine this emerging technology area.

Microgrid World Congress 2015

Tuesday, May 19th - Thursday, May 21st

Barcelona, Spain

Peter Asmus, principal research analyst at Navigant Research, will discuss microgrids (details to come).  To schedule a meeting at this event, Please Contact Us.

Navigant Research forecasts that global annual microgrid capacity will increase from 685 megawatts in 2013 to more than 4 gigawatts by 2020 under a base scenario. The drivers behind this growth range from the need for greater grid reliability and resiliency, to the need for integrating more renewable energy into the grid -- including distributed solar, wind, biogas, etc. These trends, as well as the need to reduce reliance on fossil fuels and improve the economics of off-grid energy systems, are compelling utilities, municipal governments, rural and island communities, and other stakeholders to look at microgrids and virtual power plants (VPPs) as key strategies for meeting the world's future energy needs.

The Microgrid World Congress 2015 brings together thought leaders, energy executives, and project managers from around the world for three days of intense networking and information sharing concerning the design, implementation and operation of microgrid and VPP systems around the world. 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 microgrid case studies in both grid-tied and off-grid/remote environments.
