The 3 R's of Microgrids-Resilient, Reliable and Renewable: Hybrid Microgrids and Net Zero Carbon
Our presentation will outline the use of a Hybrid microgrid as a solution to creating a or modernizing a District Energy system so that it meets a net zero carbon emissions footprint. The Study will be highlighted by our experience in both Designing and constructing various hybrid systems throughout the country. It will detail the various technologies, their integration, basic operations and the emissions, ROI and cost savings that can be generated. Our Study will try to show that with the proper design, a district energy system can not only be a very beneficial service for its customer but be a “green” partner to the communities it serves.
