Attend The Microgrid Forum 2013

With the increasing frequency of natural disasters these days, and the growing energy demand in developing countries with poor infrastructure, the calls for microgrids are getting stronger.

The Dufresne Team recognizes the growing importance of microgrids in our world, and will be organizing the first Microgrid Forum to bring together professionals to shape the future of microgrids.

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.

Important topics that will be discussed include the business case for microgrids, identifying key technology advances, overcoming security challenges with microgrids, and evaluating microgrid applications in telecoms, rural, large-scale community dwelling scenarios and corporates.

The first Microgrid Forum will be held in Europe and Asia in the following vibrant cities:

Europe: Amsterdam, The Netherlands, 17-18 September 2013

Asia: Singapore, 12-13 November 2013
