(Shelton, CT, September 19, 2022) — Clarion Energy, a subsidiary of Clarion Events, the world leader in B2B industry events, announced today the launch of a first-of-its-kind regional event designed to bring utility and renewable energy leaders together to overcome critical challenges facing the energy industry.
GridTECH Connect Forum will provide an intimate, solutions-driven environment for energy leaders to network, learn, and collaborate outside of their traditional silos for the first time. The events will focus on the interconnection of distributed energy resources — solar, storage, electric vehicles, microgrids, demand response programs, and more.
“DER interconnection is often time-consuming and expensive. Improving this process is crucial to realizing local and national sustainability goals,” said Desiree Hanson, Executive Vice President at Clarion Events. “Clarion Energy is pleased to provide a forum for distribution professionals, developers, and regulators to collectively address critical issues surrounding the interconnection of distributed energy resources for a better tomorrow.”
The inaugural GridTECH Connect Forum will be held at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, California on February 6, 2023 ahead of DISTRIBUTECH International, the leading transmission and distribution industry event.
The GridTECH Connect Forum – San Diego advisory board features senior leaders from Pacific Gas & Electric, Southern California Edison, San Diego Gas & Electric, Clean Power Alliance, Anza Electric Cooperative, Imperial Irrigation District, Nexamp, DSD Renewables, Standard Solar, EDP Renewables, and Pivot Energy.
Future GridTECH Connect Forum events including two additional regions in 2023 will be announced at a later date. For updates and to learn more visit gridtechconnect.com
