Photo Editorial: The Microgrid Conference


Part of the Milldam Public Relations team attended New York and Beyond last week, a conference focused on discussing the growing adoption and challenges of establishing microgrids. Not just attendees, Milldam partnered with Microgrid Knowledge to plan and execute the event itself. A highly successful day, the team (Adam, Caroline, and Shannon) was thrilled to welcome attendees, sponsors, speakers and leaders of the industry to Times Square, to learn from the panels and network with energy professionals.

We welcomed over 150 attendees to the sold-out conference! We enjoyed the energy of such a large crowd all day.

For more photos or information about the event, keep checking Microgrid Knowledge’s website. Want to learn more about how we can help plan your event? Send us a note. Enjoy our compilation of pics!
