Microgrid Solutions: From Building to Region

Microgrids are sophisticated backup power systems, both energy supply and demand, to strengthen overall grid resilience. Ranging from single buildings, to neighborhoods, and then to regions, they are able to operate if the main grid is down. This session will highlight a bold NY statewide initiative encouraging microgrid development, and describe both a citywide and regional example of proposed microgrids, their functions, and the institutional concerns to get these systems running.
