Microgrid and DER Leaders Convene at RSC Summit in San Diego to Talk Resiliency, Efficiency and Sustainability

Roosevelt Strategic Council (RSC) will be bringing together Senior Strategic Leaders and Innovators across the energy sector for two days of unparalleled educational and networking sessions at their Microgrids & DERS Summit on February 26- 27, 2019 at The Parma Payne Goodall Alumni Center, San Diego State University. The Summit will put leaders from Regulatory Commissions and Markets, Utilities, Dept. of Defense, Federal and State government, DER providers, Innovators and Researchers in one room

Hoboken, NJ, February 20, 2019 --( 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. We have followed this model for close to a decade for the DoD, Intelligence and Federal sectors. We are excited to see the same effective and efficient outcomes occur for the energy sector at our February meeting. There will be a lot of powerful minds and strategic thinkers convening so I have no doubt it will prove to be a benefit for all in attendance,” stated Monica Mckenzie, Managing Partner, Roosevelt Strategic Council.

Several Leaders and Innovators Speaking at the Summit include:

- Ms. Shelee Kimura, SVP, Business Development and Strategy, Hawaiian Electric Company
- Dr. Thomas Bialek, Chief Engineer, SDG&E
- Mr. Andy Butcher, COO, Platte River Power Authority
- Mr. Raj Roy, Principal Manager, DSO Implementation, SCE
