PJM, Southern Co, Duke, DOE, TVA, and Dept of Defense Convene for Strategies and Innovations to Improve DERS Penetration and Microgrid Projects

Roosevelt Strategic Council (RSC), well known for its years of service to the defense, intelligence and federal government communities, will be bringing its senior level strategic educational and networking forums to the energy sector September 25- 26, 2018 at their inaugural Microgrids & DERS Summit, in the D.C metro area.

Washington, DC, August 07, 2018 --(PR.com)-- The Summit will focus on the technical capabilities and innovations that are allowing for advanced microgrid projects and increased penetration of renewables and DERS into the grid. Equally, it will also serve as a conduit for developing the strategic business models and use cases while discussing the current regulatory and market landscape.

“We find that great outcomes can occur when we put folks in a room together for two days that don’t necessarily talk to each other on a day to day basis and come from varying sector expertise. They discover how there are areas for collaboration and teaming, or gain a perspective or insight from someone else, that helps them do their job better. We push the speakers and attendees hard on dialogue and debate, wanting everyone to walk away with actionable outcomes,” stated Monica Mckenzie, Managing Partner, Roosevelt Strategic Council.

Top level leaders and innovators that will be speaking at the forum include:

-Mr. Bruce J. Walker, Assistant Secretary, Office of Electricity and Acting Assistant Secretary, CESAR, U.S. Department of Energy
-Ms. Lisa Jung, SES, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense, Installation Energy, OUSD
