Net Zero


The Net Zero Zone and Microgrid Showcase is the only concept of its kind at any tradeshow. An indoor/outdoor display that provides the opportunity to showcase your company’s products/services while also providing the site-based power that will be stored and distributed to a special area of exhibit booths inside the hall. The Net Zero Zone will feature the use of onsite-based power and will be adjacent to the Microgrid Showcase area which features a sponsor presentation area and networking Lounge. The entire Net Zero Zone and Microgrid  Showcase is located right on the convention center main exhibit floor. 

This unique opportunity is designed to showcase the components – energy sources, storage, management and loads – of a resilient building level hybrid ac/dc microgrid – as part of the  market forecasted to grow into a $60 billion dollar industry within the next 5 years.
