The Microgrids Next Door: Their Growing Role in your Power Supply

Wednesday, December 18, 2013

Concern about ensuring a reliable and resilient power supply – especially in the wake of major power outages in recent years and associated physical and economic damage – and new and affordable technology are driving deployment of microgrid systems.  Microgrids present opportunities for host savings and for providing services to the grid.  They also support greater use of renewable energy resources, including electric and thermal, intermittent and baseload, as sources of power for the system whether islanded or connected to a larger grid.  This webinar will address:

  • The benefits of microgrids to their hosts and the grid
  • Federal regulations that are building support for microgrids
  • State regulation that restricts multi-customer microgrids
  • Who designs, owns, builds and maintains a microgrid, how is it financed and what are the investment opportunities?
  • The evolving relationship of local distribution companies to microgrids and whether microgrids are a disruptive challenge or a new business opportunity
