Maryland Clean Energy Center 2013 Summit
Mark your calendars for the 2013 Maryland Clean Energy Summit at the Marriott Inn and Conference Center UMUC in College Park. The Summit will focus on “Solving the Distributed Energy Puzzle: Microgrids & Other Smart Solutions”. This two-day forum will address the challenges of identifying, integrating and assembling the various pieces of the puzzle needed to advance distributed energy solutions. Energy generation, including clean renewable power, transmission, distribution and management are all part of the puzzle of managing and securing power supply systems. Communications technology to manage this critical infrastructure is “democratizing the grid” and creating new opportunities to improve cost savings, reliability, security, and greenhouse gas emissions reductions.
This year’s summit is already attracting thought leaders in the clean energy sector and distributed generation/microgrid specialties. Confirmed speakers include:
•Outgoing FERC Chairman Jon Wellinghoff,
•Nominated FERC Chairman Ron Binz
•Rutherford “Bo” Poats of Pace Global,
•Gerald Arnold of NIST, and
•Alex Kragie of the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection.
Every year, the Summit brings together industry leaders and innovators from a broad spectrum of clean energy specialties, as well as senior federal, state, and local government officials. Last year’s Summit attracted hundreds of attendees from Maryland and the Mid-Atlantic region, making it one of the best professional development and networking events in Maryland’s clean energy sector.
