McNeil CARE – Renewable Energy Seminar Series: The Energy Transition- Role of Microgrids

Grid modernization and expanded use of renewable energy resources, like solar and wind, lead to the need to electrify everything to reduce consumption of fossil fuels, reduce energy costs, and build resilience for a fragile and vulnerable grid. Climate change caused by greenhouse gasses loading of the atmosphere typically causes grid outage damage that can be costly life-threatening disasters. This presentation is directed at shelter and transportation electrification and how they presently interact with the electrical utility. Microgrids are a type of Distributed Energy Resource and Non-Wired Alternatives for the main grid. This presentation addresses microgrids, their many features and how they will be utilized in future grid modernization.
