Stratean, the developer of a patented and revolutionary "stratified" downdraft gasifier, today announced that CleanSpark, LLC, Stratean's wholly owned subsidiary, will showcase its renewable energy technologies at two major microgrid conferences during October.
- CleanSpark will be one of a limited number of supplier partners invited to showcase its renewable energy solutions, and specifically its advanced and innovative microgrid management technology, to attendees of the California Energy Collaboration Conference at Stanford University's Hoover Institute on October 12. As part of the conference, the California Energy Commission and the Department of Navy are expected to formalize a partnership to help Navy and Marine Corps installations in California transition to renewable energy alternatives to meet state and U.S. Department of Defense climate and energy goals. The company will present its technologies and discuss its success with microgrid installations and operations with panelists and senior Navy and Marine Corps leaders. CleanSpark's FractalGrid Demonstration Project, funded by the California Energy Commission and located on Camp Pendleton is an excellent example of success between the Commission and the Department of Defense.
- In addition, CleanSpark will present at the Microgrids Convergence Conference in San Mateo, Calif. on October 25 and 26, 2016. Mr. Mike Firenze, the Chief Executive Officer of CleanSpark will also participate in a roundtable discussion addressing the application of microgrid technology solutions to meet alternative energy needs. The conference is expected to be attended by a wide-range of military and defense contractors as well as the industry's best from the utility and academic arena.
Matthew Schultz, Chief Executive Officer of Stratean, Inc., commented, "Each of these conferences provides us with a unique opportunity to take our technologies and solutions directed at alternative energy decision-makers in the federal government and commercial arenas. Demand for reliable, efficient and clean distributed energy alternatives is driving an increase in the development and deployment of microgrids at both the federal level and within the private sector. Our repeated success with microgrid projects, including our installation for the Department of Defense at Camp Pendleton, demonstrates the effective application of our technologies and the depth of our expertise. We look forward to sharing our solutions and experience with buyers looking to achieve tangible results by improving their energy resources."
