A Focused Educational and Networking Opportunity

HOMER International Microgrid Conference  offers an in-depth, methodical examination of the key imperatives for implementing cost-effective microgrids within grid-tied, remote, and off-grid environments. The program is closely tailored to walk attendees through the process of planning and deploying a successful project.

Registrants will come away with a concrete understanding of the best practices, design tools, and technology strategies for deploying microgrid systems — reinforced by case study presentations of leading deployments from around the world. Abundant time is reserved for networking with fellow project owners and industry colleagues.

Energy providers of all varieties are exploring the use of microgrids to incorporate renewable power resources, reduce CO2 emissions, and achieve energy security and independence. The remote, island, and off-grid systems sector is the largest microgrid segment worldwide, but the grid-connected segment is exploding as the solar-storage industry takes off, and the benefits become increasingly cost effective. HOMER® has been used to model and develop microgrids in every corner of the world.  

After four highly successful HOMER Microgrid Conferences in Mexico, Spain, Australia, and New York City, HOMER Energy is hosting the 5th Annual HOMER Microgrid International Conference 2017 at Embassy Suites Hotel in Denver, Colorado.  Denver was chosen because it is just down the road from HOMER’s headquarters in Boulder, which will allow us to have most of our staff present at the meeting.

Learn HOMER Pro – From the Pros at HOMER

The entire third day offers an opportunity for an optional introductory or advanced training in HOMER Pro, by the people who created it. HOMER is the international standard for microgrid evaluation. Learn how HOMER can be used to make sure your microgrid brings you the economic and environmental benefits you envision it will.

Microgrid Lessons from Global Markets

Organizations looking to realize the benefits of distributed renewable energy resources are seeking reality-based guidance on the design, implementation, and operation of cost-effective microgrid systems. The HOMER Energy microgrid conference series has consistently focused on how to gain these benefits.

  • This two-day program will carefully examine the business models, optimal technology mix, and critical steps for successfully deploying microgrid systems in remote, island, and grid-connected environments. We’ll discuss refining the business model as well as effectively planning, designing, and deploying microgrids. 
  • We’ll bring together government officials, project and technology developers, system owners and utilities, and other energy professionals from across the industry for in-depth information sharing and networking.
  • The Conference offers an optional half-day training in the HOMER software with certified HOMER trainers — both introductory and advanced.

Don’t miss this opportunity to:

  • Refine your business model and technology strategy for your microgrid scenario
  • Learn from industry leaders about what works and what doesn’t in implementing microgrid solutions

HOMER Energy Clean Power EverywhereHOMER Energy is the world’s leading microgrid modeling software company. The HOMER (Hybrid Optimization of Multiple Energy Resources) software identifies alternatives for cost-effective and reliable microgrids that combine traditionally generated power, renewable energy, storage, and load management.

We’ve worked in the microgrid industry before it was even an industry. Since 2009, in addition to our microgrid modeling software, our team has provided consulting services related to policies, economics, and technologies of renewable and distributed power. We often speak at conferences about microgrids, renewable energy sources, and hybrid power systems as well as work one-on-one with global business leaders in renewable and distributed power.

The power of HOMER is unparalleled. Our microgrid modeling software can play a crucial role in helping new technologies understand how they can best operate in the world’s changing landscape.
