Welcome to Newcastle!

The critical mass of microgrid brainpower that is the annual microgram symposium lands this year as the Newcastle 2017 Symposium on Microgrids, 28-30 November 2017, at the CSIRO Energy Centre. This is the first ever symposium in Australia, which is fast emerging as a leader in microgrid development and grid defection. To preview the presentations, click on the “Newcastle 2017 Agenda” tab above.


You are at the home of the the microgrid symposium series. The first symposium in the series took place in 2005 in Berkeley, California, and last year the twelfth was held at Niagara-on-the-lake, Canada. Most past symposium presentations are downloadable from this site, along with some posters and photos.
