Join Microgrid Forum Workshop And Profit From $8 Billion Industry

The Microgrid Forum will conduct a pre-forum workshop that helps industry players in examining the challenges, solutions, and opportunities for Microgrids in different scenarios. Carefully curated and comprehensively researched information will be presented in the symposium to help you develop a microgrid business and technical plan. Workshop leaders Marion Perrin and Tuan Quoc Tran, both of CEA Liten, will be lending their expertise to the seminar.

Microgrids are increasingly gaining the attention of the energy sector, and are expected to be an important part of our energy future. Two recent reports by Navigant Research backs up underlined the explosive growth that microgrids will undergo over the next 7 years. This year, market revenue in the industry is estimated at $8.3 billion; this figure will see a stratospheric rise to $40 billion by 2020. Whichever way one looks at it, microgrids are destined to be a significant part of our energy supply in the future, and will be crucial in our efforts to improve grid reliability, establish a green economy, and in distributed generation.

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

Europe: Amsterdam, Netherlands, 17-19 September 2013

Asia: Singapore, 12-13 November 2013

Carbon Proton Battery Stores As Much Energy As Lithium Battery In Lab Tests

“Will anything match lithium-ion batteries for energy density?” is a frequently repeated question. It’s certainly not in the cards in the next few years. But the research coming out of Australia’s RIMT University in Melbourne says that one day, it’s possible – with a carbon proton battery. The research team have designed and built a…

Evaluating The Economics Of Gas Storage for the Grid

Evaluating The Economics Of Gas Storage For The Grid

Power-to-gas is the method of turning electricity into hydrogen gas using electrolysis. The resulting hydrogen can then be used as vehicle fuel, combined with carbon dioxide to make methane (a natural gas replacement), or injected into natural gas infrastructure as hydrogen in low concentrations. If made from surplus renewable electricity, the generated hydrogen is low-carbon…
