DERS & Microgrids Connect Forum – 29-30 November 2022 - Clean Coalition

DERS & Microgrids Connect Forum – 29-30 November 2022

The Clean Coalition was a partner organization for this forum, which took place 29 - 30 November 2022.

The Clean Coalition was a partner organization for the DERS & Microgrids Connect forum, where energy stakeholders who are bold leaders and innovators from federal, public and private sector C&I facilities, campuses and installations, utilities, and industry came together to spark new ideas and forge the path towards a more efficient, clean and resilient national energy ecosystem. Attendees joined industry leaders on 29 – 30 November 2022 at the AIA National HQ in Washington, D.C. for this premier forum on everything DERS.

2022 Summit key focus areas included:

  • Innovations in Building Energy Management Systems (BEMS) to support greater DERS integration and how to connect new DERS to current systems.
  • On site generation and storage for your facility: Best practices for integrating battery storage, building-integrated photovoltaics (PV),microgrids, EV charging stations and more.
  • Microgrids: capabilities for industrial and supply chain facilities, DoD installations, healthcare facilities, EV charging and the grid.
  • Grid connection capacity management and market access : what does the underlying control and communication systems need to include? What do you need to know about VPPs?
  • DERMS and supporting digital capabilities for managing DERs behind and in front of the meter: Supporting advanced data analytics for optimizing DER management at the facility and grid level.
  • Utility operational and business cases for integrating DERs in front of and behind the meter to meet customer demand: including current regulatory landscape.
  • Innovations in microgrid controllers: intelligent software for load prediction, management and enabling optimal cooperation among DERS.
  • Cyber security and resilience for IT/OT systems.
  • Micro nuclear reactors, battery storage innovation and more!

At the summit you had the ability to: 

  • Gain Education & Insight
    • For Large Energy Consumers in the Built Environment, you will walk away with knowledge gained towards how to improve your facilities’ energy efficiencies, resiliency and environmental sustainability through integrating DERs and microgrids.
    • For Utilities, you will gain insight towards evolving technologies, policy and procedure for supporting a distributed energy infrastructure for our Nation.
    • For Industry, you will learn what your current and potential customers and partners need from you!
  • Build Partnerships
    • Meet new customers, partners and clients! The Summit is designed to bring together a diverse group of senior stakeholders from across the built environment, the grid, and industry solution providers who do not necessarily engage on a daily basis in order to build new professional networks and expand collaboration.
    • Ample Networking and Interactive Sessions allow all in attendance to interact in meaningful and beneficial ways throughout the Summit.
  • Influence
    • Share your own insight and knowledge during our interactive sessions. Designed as an interactive ‘Town Hall’ forum, all attendees are encouraged to engage in dialogue and discussion with each other and the speakers during each session.
    • Industry, Sponsor, Exhibit or Attend in order to showcase your capabilities to a variety of potential customers and partners and help influence the path forward towards a connected and distributed energy ecosystem!
