NASHUA, N.H., Aug. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- On August 23 from 2:00 p.m. – 2:30 p.m., Renewable Energy World will host a discussion on social media about the opportunities for the renewable energy sector to drive the adoption of decentralized renewables in emerging global markets.
A movement is growing to bring energy security to the 1.1 billion people around the world living without electricity, and renewable energy is at the foundation of that movement. The idea is simple; leapfrog the big, centralized power infrastructure — multi-megawatt power generation centers and bulk power transmission lines — by building decentralized renewable generation closer to end users — configuring, for example, solar PV, wind turbines and energy storage systems into hybrid microgrids.
The #SkipTheGrid event was created to highlight this movement to bring energy straight to the people without the delays created by funding, permitting and building large infrastructure projects.
Industry stakeholders can join the discussion on Twitter – https://twitter.com/REWorld – on Aug. 23 from 2:00 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. EDT and tweet questions about the opportunities for microgrids, what's working, and what's starting to scale, or share success stories about funding, supportive policies, and new installations and demonstration projects.
Renewable Energy World also will focus on decentralized energy structures as part of a conference track on Global Markets during Power Generation Week, December 11-15.
Power Generation Week consists of 5 events including POWER-GEN International, Renewable Energy World International, NUCLEAR POWER International, COAL-GEN, and GenForum. As the world's largest power generation event, boasting 20,000 attendees and over 1,400 exhibitors from around the world, Power Generation Week is designed to connect key suppliers and service providers with influential decision makers in the domestic and international power sector. Attendees and exhibitors can take advantage of attending an event that truly covers every aspect of the power generation industry.
