Session 4: Renewable Energy Microgrids - Integrating Multiple Site-Based Energy Resources to Meet Facility Needs For Operations Cost Reduction, Improved Reliability, and Sustainability
Date & Time
Wednesday, March 30, 2022, 12:15 PM - 12:55 PM

Renewable energy microgrids - the facility site-based combination and coordination of clean energy generating assets (solar, wind, fuel cell, geothermal, other), energy storage (batteries, thermal, mechanical), and automated, reliable controls - have emerged as high-value tools to combat the mounting problems of rising operational costs (utility tariff changes, demand fees), power supply uncertainty (intentional and unintentional utility shutoffs), and public pressure to reduce carbon footprint.  These have been demonstrated in some of the most demanding environments (hospitals)- significantly reducing cost now and long into the future, helping facilities ride through outages and maintain productivity, and receiving praise from stakeholders and positive press that is becoming increasingly important to successful operation.  Learn how facilities can not only realize these benefits, but can capitalize on tax and cash incentives and optimize their facilities performance.
