This year the conference will focus on companies paving the way to develop existing technologies in innovative ways and to modernize the grid to effectively utilize distributed energy resources. We have keynotes from SoCalGas to spark the conversation around building a more resilient infrastructure in a cost effective localized way and what that means for the grid of the future to take on these resources and many others. Michael Patterson with Romeo Power will be addressing the challenges of innovating and building a start-up in the energy sector.
