March 1, 2017

Mendham, NJ. The Power Sources Manufacturers Association’s (PSMA) Energy Efficiency Committee is sponsoring an “Energy Management-Smart Microgrid” industry session at APEC 2017. Consisting of presentations by seven industry experts, Session IS20 will be held on Thursday March 30 from 2:00 p.m. to 5:25 p.m. at the Tampa Convention Center.

Smart microgrids are rapidly becoming accepted to manage local energy distribution for critical applications in a variety of industry applications.

Co-chairs of the PSMA Energy Efficiency Committee, Dustin Baker and Ed Herbert, encourage attendees of APEC 2017 to attend this informative session and to consider participating in the other PSMA-sponsored meetings during the week.
