Antoine Paquin, President, CEO, and Founder of Solantro Semiconductor Corp.


Microgrids hold the potential to be the single most important development in the quickly evolving world of energy infrastructure over the next decade. Microgrids will one day be able to integrate wind, solar and other renewables in remote communities. Microgrids facilitating distributed generation will provide energy for remote communities, mines, islands, independent office towers and industrial complexes. Further, they will be able to embrace important efficiencies in conservation, analytics and smart grid that will change grid base load requirements. Solantro Semiconductor, is applying semiconductor technology to the development of power conversion systems, including inverters, thereby playing a key part in this vision of a world where microgrids play an increasingly important part of the delivery of energy. In this talk, energy visionary and entrepreneur Antoine Paquin will describe his vision of the coming world of microgrids and discuss this topic with leading executives and stakeholders.
