Expert speakers will address the subject and questions related to diesel engines complying with the Environmental Protection Agency’s Tier 4 Final clean air standards, with a special focus on microgrid applications.

Attendees will learn:

• EPA Tier 4 Final emission standards

• Myths vs. facts regarding Tier 4 Final diesels

• Benefits of EPA-compliant diesel-based power generation systems

Speakers include: Chris Ellis, executive vice president for distributed infrastructure at PowerSecure; Darren Tasker, vice president of industrial for Volvo Penta of the Americas; and Jim McDonald, director of environmental impact at Miratech.
