The 13th Annual Flexible Power Symposium 2020: A Virtual Experience makes the world a much smaller place by bringing innovation, information and networking opportunities to you. There are no travel fees or hotel reservations to make. Just fill out your registration form and get ready to maximize a virtual experience that will allow you to explore the latest developments and network with people all over the country and beyond.

This year’s theme will be “Flexibility and Reliability for a Renewable Energy Future” which will be explored through a virtual tour, expert discussion on thermal generation and energy storage integration as well as a virtual expo. Take advantage of our Focus Sessions where attendees will also get an opportunity to hear from consultants and customers before they start procurement and construction on power plant projects. Customers will also talk about their experiences years after operating and maintaining plants designed and sourced by Wärtsilä. We may not be able to be together this year, but we can continue to collaborate without losing momentum to the road to our renewable energy future.
