The global microgrid market size was valued at USD 3.76 billion in 2016, and is expected to reach USD 17.51 billion by 2025, growing at a CAGR of 17.0%.* The drivers behind this include the need for greater grid reliability and resiliency, the integration and control of distributed energy resources (DER) into the grid, as well as the desire by C&I end users in campus environments to control energy costs and adopt more on-site, renewable energy generation. These trends, as well as the need to reduce reliance on fossil fuels, are compelling utilities, municipal governments, rural communities, and large energy customers to embrace microgrids as key strategy for meeting their energy needs.
Microgrid Global Innovation Forum
March 18 - March 20
The 9th Microgrid Global Innovation Forum, March 18-20, 2019 in Washington, D.C., brings together thought leaders, utilities, energy providers, project managers and other stakeholders for two days of focused networking and information sharing concerning the latest technological developments, design, implementation and operation of hybrid renewable energy microgrids. The emphasis is on maximizing the business case for microgrids, integration into the larger grid, and sharing real-world case studies of both grid-tied and off-grid/remote environments.
