Grassroots Energy Summit: The Microgrid Future


End-users of electric power are developing microgrids into a new class of energy resource. By integrating distributed generation, load management and storage (thermal and electric) in smart networks, microgrids transform passive load into responsive grid resources providing energy, ancillary services and demand management. Microgrids enhance resilience by isolating from the grid and self-generating and self-balancing in emergencies. By integrating thermal and electric load management, microgrids achieve substantial fuel savings and reduce carbon pollution. Microgrids represent a promising new avenue to improve grid performance and realize the promise of the smart grid.

On Thursday, October 16 we held a seminar that explored the capabilities, opportunities and financing possibilities with microgrids. Speakers included leaders in microgrid development, including founding members of the Microgrid Resources Coalition.

Topics Included:
Microgrid Capabilities and Benefits: Communities and Grid Operations
Utility 2.0 and Microgrids: An Integrated Opportunity
Making it Real: Financing and Developing Microgrids
