Microgrids and the Transition to Distributed Energy
October 8–10th, 2018

Join us! Agave Systems will be a sponsor of the 6th Annual HOMER International Microgrid Conference and Exhibition at the beautiful Paradise Point Resort in San Diego, California. Presented by Distributed Energy.

HIMC is the leading forum for industry leaders and policymakers in this emerging market to come together and share successes, technologies, financial models, and develop goals and policy objectives to drive the industry forward.

A pre-conference private tour will give attendees an intimate view of the UCSD microgrid project, an advanced energy network that provides electricity for the university’s 450-hectare campus.

Two days of conference activities offer a strong focus on solving practical challenges through real-world examples presented by leading figures in the microgrid and distributed energy industry. Between presentations, networking breaks on San Diego’s Mission Bay offer an amazing setting to engage with peers and build valuable relationships.

An optional third day of hands-on training with the HOMER Grid and HOMER Pro software platforms can help you model your next microgrid project, develop your demand management strategy, and get training you need to deploy more projects and land more deals.

Contact Agave Systems if you’d like to pre-schedule a meeting during the show.

Regatta Solutions at the Green Film FestivalAndrea discussed ways in which communities and businesses can “go green” and be more resilient against the affects of climate change, including on site power generation and emergency preparedness planning.  She also spoke about how to put a price on resiliency and about climate change as a national security issue.

Green Future:

The power generation grid is evolving from a one-way delivery system to a multi-directional network using smaller “virtual power plants,” where many locations work together to  function of a traditional power plant, are an example of the types of projects that would reshape the grid.
