Who should attend?

The Conference is intended for professionals or students from industry, government or academia who are seeking to remain on the cutting edge of the clean energy paradigm shift. This includes stakeholders involved in:

  • The design, manufacture, or installation of electric power generators whether on a small distributed scale, or on a central scale.
  • Companies involved in consulting, planning, and development of clean energy utilization systems related to smart grids or microgrids.
  • Those involved in clean transportation including hydrogen fuel cell vehicles and how they are fueled, or plug-in electric vehicles.
  • Finally, the networking and information sharing will be of key interest to regulators, public policy professionals, researchers, technology developers, system integrators, investors, urban planners, and others who wish to understand the potential and challenges currently associated with the generation or utilization of clean energy.


ICEPAG (the International Colloquium on Environmentally Preferred Advanced Generation) is presented annually by the Advanced Power and Energy Program (APEP) at UC Irvine, as a “Global Summit Series” varying each year between Grid Evolution and Microgrid technologies:

  • ICEPAG 2017:  Grid Evolution Global Summit
  • ICEPAG 2018:  Microgrid Global Summit
  • ICEPAG 2019:  Grid Evolution Global Summit

As a Colloquium, the conference (1) combines a collection of tutorials and professional presentations, (2) provides extended question/answer periods to stimulate discussion, and (3) strikes a balance between the interests of industry, regulators, and academia; and students and practicing professionals.
