Webinar: The story of microgrids and a historical perspective

Expand your knowledge of microgrid technology and the microgrid industry with insights from HOMER Energy founder, Dr Peter Lilienthal, into the rise of microgrids and the bright energy future they allow us to create.

Today technology evolves rapidly, making it more important than ever for us to understand how it all began before building a vision for the future.

From powering remote villages and islands to running critical infrastructure like military bases and medical and supply chain facilities during extended grid outages, microgrids have come a long way.

By looking at how microgrids have developed over the years, we can see that a distributed energy future powered by microgrids is a lot closer than we think.
