100% renewably-powered 

verge 23 conference program

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.

Registering with an Expo Pass will give you access to the VERGE 23 Expo — plus all keynote sessions, networking receptions and microgrid tours.

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.

ARIS Modular Combi Heat Pump System

ARIS is cleaner, more efficient HVAC and hot water. ARIS harnesses the power of air-to-water heat pumps and superior thermal properties of water to create and deliver energy quietly and safely throughout the home. By combining and managing the primary drivers of building energy use and emissions (heating, cooling, hot water) the ARIS system replaces all dirty thermal appliances in use in the home at one time. Utilizing dedicated TES (thermal energy storage) with programable controls, ARIS offers built in load shifting and efficiency scheduling for increased cost savings and comfort. The system is modular and scalable to all building types, and climate zones, both retrofit and new build.

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 for more information.
