FortCollins2019SymposiumOnMicrogrids

The purpose of the Fort Collins 2019 Symposium on Microgrids was to exchange information internationally, yet informally, on the current state of research on microgrids, and to identify key technical, economic, and policy issues that should be addressed by future work. Our goal in Fort Collins was to continue our exchange of results from microgrid research, demonstration, and deployment worldwide with an emphasis on recent results and areas of potential international cooperation. As before, each region invited eminent speakers to present their work, and there were additional short summaries of each region’s research program. The format of the Fort Collins Symposium was similar to prior ones. Attendance was by invitation only, and attendees, including speakers, were responsible for their own travel and accommodation expenses. This year’s sessions were held at the Colorado State University’s Lory Student Center, on Saturday and Sunday, 10-11 August 2019. There was an optional one-day 12 August 2019 technical tour to the National Renewable Energy Lab (NREL) and The Alliance Center (TAC), both in the Denver area, https://www.nrel.gov/ and https://www.thealliancecenter.org/
