Welcome to the 6th Annual HOMER International Microgrid Conference

HOMER International Microgrid ConferenceThe 6th Annual HOMER International Microgrid Conference will provide attendees with some of the most interesting microgrid case studies we could find on projects going on all over the world. At the same time, it will offer an overview of the industry from some of the world’s most qualified microgrid experts.

We have educational tracks on Microgrid Business Models, Island Microgrids, Arctic Systems, Energy Access Microgrids, the Role of Regulation in microgrids, and dozens of case studies with a special focus on California, which has been playing a leading role in microgrid – as well as renewable energy and storage – development.

University of California San Diego MicrogridWe also have a very interesting tour of a microgrid at the University of California at San Diego (UCSD) available on October 7th. One of the most impressive campus microgrids in the country, the UCSD project manages distributed energy generation for450 buildings across a 1,150 acre campus, integrating multiple energy resources with increased reliability and reduced carbon emissions.

Last but not least, we have a full day of training opportunities on Wednesday, October 10th. You’ll have the opportunity to learn how to design off-grid and grid-tied hybrid renewable energy systems in the context of learning about HOMER Pro and HOMER Grid. We’re also happy to report that if you’re a solar professional, you can get continuing education credits from the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) for taking these courses.

For a quick check on the agenda details please visit our conference site at www.MicrogridConference.com. We look forward to meeting everyone in San Diego and sharing the latest on microgrid technology and markets.

As I mentioned, if you can’t make it to the conference, please keep an eye on our website at www.MicrogridNews.com and our social media pages to keep up with the goings on.


  1. Great conference to current power usage. Actually I’m very much interested on how to size tie-grid systems. Unfortunately I will not be in apposition to attend the conference.
    If I could get the information through my email I will appreciate for your consideration.
    In my country Kenya me as a Solar Technician and Sales, mostly we do OFF Grid systems. Tie Grid are there, but very small in number.
    Best regards,
