Distributed power generation is an up-and-coming method in the energy sector. It’s “literally a generational change” as the DEC puts it, because today’s utilities are adapting to a new landscape, with new business models, and learning how to work with customers who today produce their own power.

Whether it ends up being virtual or in-person, the conference offers the chance to gain practical insights from industry leaders on how distributed generation is disrupting the industry and transforming the way power is generated, explore project financing, and hear case studies on current community solar projects, successful CHP implementation at C&I power facilities, and district energy systems. There will be interactive sessions with a mix of panels, presenters, and Q&A opportunities, as well. Here are the other figures making appearances at the convention—or scheduled to give live video feeds if it moves to virtual.
