Applying Risk Assessment to Microgrid Reliability

Sept. 23, 2021
It’s important to do regular testing and measurement of your microgrid installation. In this workshop you’ll learn testing methods to ensure your microgrid is ready when you really need it.

Microgrids are often installed to be there when the grid is not. In this video, experts share why it’s important to measure and calculate the reliability of microgrids so that the power is there when you really need it. This session features Stephen Fairfax of MTechnology, one of the leaders in risk assessment testing. Mark Martyak hybrid microgrids and some of the benefits of the testing that PowerSecure has been doing. George Baker shares insights on the Wellspan York Hospital microgrid and how it addresses reliability and resiliency concerns.

Kevin Normandeau, Publisher of Microgrid Knowledge serves as moderator of this panel discussion.

Featured speakers include:

George Baker, Director of Engineering, Wellspan York Hospital

Stephen Fairfax, President, MTechnology

Mark Martyak, Chief Asset Officer, PowerSecure

This video was recorded during Microgrid 2020 Global, a virtual gathering of microgrid leaders, advocates, and thinkers from seven continents. Held in November of 2020, the editors at Microgrid Knowledge gathered the industry at a pivotal event designed to set a goal for microgrid growth over the next decade. Although this was previously recorded, you’ll find many of the examples and insights are timeless in their strategic value.

The three-day event featured over 90 speakers and 27 educational sessions. Designed by the editors of Microgrid Knowledge, the one-of-a-kind event covered news and trends in microgrid market development, technology, business models, financing and policy. Topics covered during the event include how microgrids can make or save you money, residential microgrids, and solutions to microgrid engineering and technical challenges.
