IEEE First International Conference On DC Microgrids                                                                                                           (7-10 June 2015)

As a follow up to the First Conference on Local DC Electricity held in Charleston, SC, March 31st to April 1, 2014, the main purpose of this new conference is to bring together practitioners and researchers in the field of DC Microgrids and related technologies. Our ability to generate, store, and use DC electricity locally without the need for long-range transmission and distribution network enables the possibility for transformational changes in the electricity infrastructure. The use of DC electricity enhances system-wide efficiency. DC microgrids powered by distributed clean energy sources such as solar PV systems can sustainably power the needs of all human beings equitably around the world.
