The Distributed Energy Conference (DEC) is the energy industry event where stakeholders, investors, and end-users meet to share their knowledge and exchange ideas through collaboration and conversation as we navigate the technical, operational, financial, business case, and regulatory aspects of initiating and managing small-scale to utility-scale distributed energy projects.
At DEC 2020, you will gain new perspectives on the utility-customer relationship and participate in discussions on new distributed energy technologies such as nuclear microreactors, the rise of energy storage, advancements in wind and solar, and growth in commercial and industrial generation.
Join Jon Grooters, Business Development Director of Grid Innovation for Minsait ACS, and others, for a discussion on “Virtual Power Plants and Their Role in Grid Management”

A virtual power plant is a network of decentralized, medium-scale power generating units such as wind farms, solar parks, and combined heat and power (CHP) units, as well as flexible power consumers and storage systems. The virtual power plant (VPP) model of DER aggregation and optimization is spreading around the globe to respond to the need for increased grid reliability and to lower the cost of renewable energy integration.
