• Webinar will explore the role microgrids play in access to reliable, affordable energy and energy equity
BOSTON, MA – September 20th, 2022 – Schneider Electric, the global leader in the digital transformation of energy management and automation, invites you to attend its webinar, “How the Energy Transition Meets Energy Equity: Microgrids with a Purpose!” to learn how microgrids can help underserved populations.
Currently, many communities do not have reliable access to the grid. Many underserved communities, rural and urban, rely on weak grid connections or sit completely off the grid. Often, these communities suffer outages or must rely on expensive external power sources, such as gensets, which use fuels that are costly to transport. In this webinar, energy and ESG managers, local governments, rewewable energy providers and manufacturers will learn about microgrids as an emerging solution that tackles these issues.
Schneider Electric will address the challenges faced to bring microgrids to underserved communities, the growth areas for the industry, and potential partners and new business models that can aid in delivering reliable energy to those in need. Together with Guidehouse, the panel will explore the role microgrids play in ensuring that underserved communities have reliable access to affordable energy and how that access makes them more resilient.
