Presentation Title:

Resilience, Cost Savings, and Sustainability: Can Your Microgrid Have It All?

Track H: Decarbonization and Electrification

Session H2: Microgrids and Renewables

Day 2  9:00 am



Microgrids are best known for delivering resilience, cost savings, and lower carbon emissions. However, these advantages can sometimes be at odds with one another. Is it feasible for microgrid initiatives to excel in all three areas simultaneously? The solution lies in integrating renewable-based distributed energy resources (DERs) and advanced automation, combined with a thorough understanding of project objectives and operational strategies. This discussion will include case studies of cities and counties that overcame energy challenges with microgrids.
