About The Event

The Microgrid Forum is an in-depth, two-day event that carefully examines the latest market drivers, enabling technologies, current deployments, and projected growth of microgrids worldwide with a focus on European and Asian countries. The program in both regions is intended to help energy professionals understand the emerging opportunities and challenges in realizing the potential of microgrids. As with all the Forums produced by Dufresne the speakers selection and confirmation will prioritise Utilities/DSOs from all over the world but mainly Asia and Europe respectively. The Microgrid Forum is organised by Dufresne, the producers of the Energy Storage World Forum, where each year more than 15 of the world’s leading utilities/TSOs/DSOs gather to shape the future of energy storage. Our past 6 Energy Storage World Forums were attended by over 1300 delegates and a total of 43 different Utilities/TSOs/DSOs took part as speakers.
