Event Details

Webinar Summary

A microgrid, which can serve a single facility or an entire campus, is a local energy grid (system) that can disconnect from and operate independently of the traditional grid.  Microgrids – which may include traditional and/or renewable power generation, distributed or district utilities, combined heat & power (CHP) solutions, and energy storage – can provide enhanced resilience with reduced life cycle costs and greatly improved sustainability benefits … truly, a win-win-win scenario.

This webinar will provide Owners and other stakeholders with the basics on microgrids and renewable energy options, arming them with enough knowledge to have productive internal discussions and consider next steps.  Those basics will include terminology, options, pros and cons, costs, timelines, and key decision points for energy projects.

This webinar as been approved for 1 AIA HSW CEU.
