The market for remote, island, and off-grid systems is by far the largest microgrid sector worldwide. This is driven by the attractive financial returns from
reducing diesel fuel consumption as advances in solar, wind, energy storage, and controls enable systems that
are primarily powered by renewables. The drive to reduce CO2 emissions and achieve
energy security and independence are also powering the growth of island and off-grid microgrids globally.
➨ The market for remote microgrids worldwide is projected to grow from 349 megawatts of generation capacity in 2011 to more than 1.1 gigawatts by 2017 -- a level equal to all other sectors combined.*
➨ Revenue growth in the remote microgrid market is projected to reach $10.2 billion by 2017
Don't miss this opportunity to:
The Microgrid Deployment Workshop 2013 is a two-day program that carefully examines the business models, optimal technology
mix, and critical steps for successfully deploying microgrid systems in remote, island, and
off-grid environments. The emphasis is on refining the business model as well as
effectively planning, designing, and deploying microgrids. |
The Workshop will bring together project and technology developers,
system owners and utilities, and other energy professionals from across the industry
for in-depth information sharing and networking.
The first day consists of a series of panel sessions that systematically analyze the key steps and requirements for deploying hybrid energy microgrid systems. The second day consists of case studies in the morning and an in-depth, hands-on training session in the afternoon focused on the use of HOMER Energy software for the design of such systems.
The Microgrid Deployment Workshop immediately follows the International Solar Energy Society (ISES) Solar World Congress 2013. ISES believes that microgrids are a key aspect of renewable energy development in the region and is pleased to have HOMER Energy provide this Workshop as an added benefit to Congress attendees wishing to learn more about this topic. Registration discounts are available for attendees who wish to attend both programs.
