Greentech Media has just wrapped up its 2018 Grid Edge Innovation Summit, our annual conference on the latest developments in distributed energy, grid integration and the future of utilities.

This week’s two-day conference covered a wide range of topics on the grid edge, from keeping track of the advances in utility distribution grid awareness and customer connectivity, to exploring the future potential of distributed intelligence, machine learning and blockchain technologies.

It also gave us a chance to catch up on some of the latest work on microgrids, virtual power plants, distributed energy resource management systems, and other instances of distributed energy resource-grid integration, as well as catch some news on future investments and projects.

Here’s an overview of some of the highlights of the conference, both on- and off-stage. Squared members have access to the video recordings of many of the panel sessions under discussion, and we’ve provided links for those interested in hearing more from the speakers themselves.
