BOULDER — Homer Energy, a leader in energy-system software and microgrid technology, is holding its fifth annual International Microgrid Conference from Sept. 18 to 21 in Denver.
The event will be held at the Embassy Suites downtown, and is the only event of its kind focused on bringing together global leaders in the microgrid community, according to a news release.
Member-owned not-for-profit Elevations Credit Union has a new branch in Midtown Fort Collins, featuring business bankers, commercial lenders and more.
Presentations include microgrid finance, case studies and the state of the market. There will also be optional training in using Homer’s software and tours of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and other clean-energy buildings.
“Our conference is special because of its strong international attendance, and because it brings together both the financial and technical aspects of microgrids,” Homer CEO and co-founder Peter Lilienthal said in a prepared statement. “For this year’s event, we are looking forward to offering even more training for users of Homer Pro, and are happy to be bringing it home to our own state. Holding the event in Colorado is an opportunity for the state to showcase its leadership in renewable energy.”
Industry leaders such as General Electric, Caterpillar and SAFT, as well as Colorado companies such as Fort Collins-based Spirae, will be in attendance. Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski will video conference in to introduce a panel on remote Alaskan microgrids.
