In this video, we look at how commerce is becoming more sustainable by exploring how Bimbo Bakeries and Albertsons are deploying microgrids.
Environmental, social and corporate governance investments are reaching record levels and driving up demand for clean energy as businesses strive to achieve sustainability goals. Where microgrids will fit into this trend remains an open question. Clark Wiedetz of GreenStruxure and Chris Wolfe of Bimbo Bakeries USA start the discussion by talking about the model offered by Bimbo, a major US bakery.
Albertsons is one of the largest retail employers in the US and its 23 distribution centers are moving toward electrifying their trucks. Jon Erickson of Power Engineers presents a feasibility study that shows how microgrids could serve three California distribution centers.
The discussion is moderated by Emily LeJeune, manager – federal market at S&C Electric. The video includes a question and answer session recorded at the live event.

This video was recorded during Microgrid 2022: Microgrids as Climate Heroes. The two-day event was designed to bring together industry leaders, visionaries, and those curious about microgrids. Held in June of 2022 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the editors at Microgrid Knowledge gathered microgrid leaders for two days of interactive sessions designed to help innovators, developers, utilities, and technology and engineering firms exploring the microgrid space.
The event featured more than 100 speakers across thirty sessions. Panel discussions covered big picture ideas around macro economic influences on the microgrid market, how microgrids can be a building block of US infrastructure and climate goals, why microgrids are becoming important to military missions and the challenges with supporting an electrified economy. The event also included multiple breakout sessions where panelists presented real-world case studies. Each session allowed audience members to ask questions of the panelists.
