HOMER CEO Peter Lilienthal gave an in-depth interview about the Asian microgrid market last month at Asian Utility Week (ASUW) 2016. In this video available on the Engerati YouTube channel, Lilienthal discusses the different Asian markets for microgrids and renewable energy, from areas having little or no energy infrastructure to those using fossil-fuel based energy sources in dealing with an unreliable grid, to developed countries looking for more resilient solutions. He explains recent developments, specific challenges, and exciting opportunities in this emerging market.
If you missed Asian Utility Week, Peter will be speaking at Solar Power International this fall. His session, part of the “solar + storage” track, is titled:
“Advanced Modeling Software & Controls for Optimizing Solar Plus Energy Storage Systems.” The session will take place Tuesday, September 13, from 11:00 am to noon. More information about this fast-growing solar trade show is available on the conference website.
