GridNEXT is TREIA’s power industry conference focused specifically on how renewable energy technologies are transforming the Grid of the Future!
When the development of wind and solar technologies reached a tipping point and ignited the deployment of new technological mechanisms on the power grid, this marked the start of the biggest transformation in the history of the electric industry. As a result, TREIA founded our first annual GridNEXT Conference in 2015 to bring together industry leaders so they could network and learn about the latest technologies affecting the Texas electric power grid. These stakeholders include: providers, developers, utilities, consumers and prosumers, policymakers, regulators, entrepreneurs, consultants, and academic leaders. From the battery storage and distributed solar to the rise of electric vehicles and increased cyber-security concerns – GridNEXT is the place to come learn, connect, and innovate with your peers about the latest energy trends and developments.
Texas represents a huge energy market and opportunity for those seeking to enter or expand business in the Texas renewable energy industry. According to the Energy Information Administration, Texas is responsible for 10% of our nation’s electricity consumption, making it the greatest electricity consuming state in the U.S. In addition, Texas has the fastest growing population among the five most populous states. The combination of these factors amounts to 450,000 new consumers or 6,800 additional GWh each year.
