GUEST POST: UC Irvine’s ICEPAG Microgrid Global Summit (& Energy Reconnections)

April 23, 2019

Spring Break is a great time to relax, spend time with family, or travel. For me, Spring Break was the perfect opportunity to attend the ICEPAG 2019 Microgrid Global Summit. The International Colloquium on Environmentally Preferred Advanced Power Generation (ICEPAG) is an annual clean energy conference presented by the Advanced Power and Energy Program (APEP) at UC Irvine. With a focus on microgrids, ICEPAG invites professionals in both academia and industry to share their cutting-edge developments.
