Woodland Hills, CA (PRWEB) April 21, 2016
Infocast is set to host the Distributed Energy Development & Deployment Summit, formerly known as Distributed Solar Summit, in Washington, D.C., on June 1-3, 2016. The long-running event has expanded its scope to accommodate the projected $26 billion distributed energy and technologies market, as estimated by Navigant Research. Attendees will have a unique opportunity to network with and hear from market segment leaders.
While Navigant Research has projected the market for distributed energy and technologies to grow into an annual $26B / 5.9 GW revenue market by 2020; at the Federal level, EO 13693 “Planning for Federal Sustainability in the Next Decade” requires that federal agencies procure 30% of their power from renewable sources by 2025.
However, with a multitude of options available — CHP, distributed wind, energy storage, fuel cells, solar PV — the process of determining the best distributed energy resource remains a significant challenge. Additionally, technical challenges, such as the integration of multiple resources with differing operating characteristics, still must be considered. Only those with an in-depth understanding of both the business and technical challenges facing distributed energy procurement will be able to effectively position themselves in this rapidly growing market.
Infocast’s Distributed Energy Development & Deployment Summit will provide a platform for Federal, State and Local-Level representatives to outline their distributed energy deployment programs and plans to move towards a decentralized, resilient and modern grid. The event will also bring utilities and renewable energy developers together with system integrators, financiers and representatives from distributed energy enabling technologies like energy storage, microgrids and smart cities to tackle the technical and financial challenges of developing the grid of the future.
