In its second year, the annual SGIP Grid Modernization Summit had more attendees than in 2015. Many of the suggestions following last year’s event, were implemented in 2016, yielding good results. Networking continues to be the biggest driver for registration.
Following the success of this year’s summit, SGIP hopes to continue refining its program for 2017 and make more strides toward grid modernization.
