EFC’s Business Section team is proud to host a seminar on LVDC & Microgrids: Trends & the Future

Join us virtually on August 11th between 9:00 pm and 12:00 pm EST to learn about the latest trends and future developments on both Low Voltage Direct Current (LVDC) and Microgrids.

This seminar focuses on the latest developments in two technologies: LVDC & Microgrids.

  • Low voltage direct current (LVDC) can be seen as a disruptive technology or an innovative solution that accelerates energy access while improving overall efficiency.
  • Microgrids are self-contained electrical networks that enable local generation to be used when demand is high, or the supply is interrupted.

The seminar will host a distinguished lineup of speakers from IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission), Canadian Utilities, Regulators, Standards body, and EFC members. They include:

Gurvinder Chopra VP, Standards & Regulation, EFC
Pratap Revuru Director, Microgrid solutions and Strategic Partnerships, Schneider Electric
