Technologies & Markets Deep-Dive | Micro-grids and C&I in Frontier Markets
Electricity grids are not consistently reliable or available around the world. Advanced products like micro-grids or modern storage not just provide basic services, but increasingly compete with diesel power generation and less consistent supply from national grids. Corporations, governments, start-ups and NGOs are eyeing the opportunity to provide energy-starved areas with electricity. This session will hear from multinationals and pioneers how they navigate the opportunities and uncertainties.
