Since 2013, GreenBiz has built 100% renewably-powered microgrids to help power our VERGE events. The microgrid is an essential component of VERGE and acts as a visual example of the climate tech solutions the event brings to the forefront.
Tours will be available throughout the event to learn about the interoperability, resilience and radical efficiency of these technology solutions.
About the Microgrid
The VERGE microgrid is the world’s largest temporary microgrid demonstrating the power, resilience and efficiency of distributed energy solutions. Each microgrid is built on-site using a combination of off-the-shelf components from startups and leading solution providers. See this year's VERGE microgrid exhibitors below.

NACFE OK Produce eCascadia
A bi-annual joint effort between the North American Council for Freight Efficiency (NACFE) and RMI, Run on Less is a trucking demonstration that showcases advancements in freight efficiency. This year’s event, Run on Less – Electric DEPOT (RoL-E DEPOT), featured 10 fleet depots with 15+ Class 3 to 8 battery electric vehicles operating in the U.S. and Canada. Data was collected from 22 trucks operating out of the 10 fleet depots. Initial findings tell us that small depots are ready for electrification now and electrification at large depots is becoming more possible, and much more. RoL-E DEPOT participant OK Produce joins us with an eCascadia. Visit runonless.com for more information.
