Event Description

BOSTON AREA SOLAR ENERGY ASSOCIATION: Promoting Renewable Energy for a Sustainable Future

A Presentation on the Progress and Potential by Geoff Sparrow, P.E., Director of Engineering at ReVision Energy

Elon Musk just offered to rebuild the Puerto Rico energy system with solar plus storage. California and Massachusetts are leading the nation and the world by accelerating the integration of hundreds of megawatts of energy storage onto the grid.

The recent weather catastrophes in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico are increasing calls for a more resilient grid architecture including microgrids and solar plus storage. The introduction of GM’s Bolt and Tesla’s Model 3 are significantly increasing battery pack production volumes and reducing battery costs.

The advent of low-cost storage coupled with low-cost solar is creating a new utility paradigm

Doors open at 7:00 p.m.; Presentation begins at 7:30 p.m
