The demands of our digital economy, coupled with escalating consequences of climate change, are creating greater risks for business owners dependent on reliable electricity. As these challenges increase, it’s clear that outdated utility grids are simply not up to the challenges. Fortunately, there are multiple options for sourcing electricity. Distributed generation technologies offer a clear path forward for those concerned about stable electricity supply. One solution rapidly gaining acceptance is the microgrid. Microgrids enable businesses to take control of their own specific electricity needs while dramatically improving reliability and, often, reducing costs. In this workshop, experts from Ecom-Energy and Bloom Energy discuss how to configure distributed generation resources into an optimal microgrid solution.
The workshop is moderated by Kevin Normandeau, Publisher of Microgrid Knowledge.

This video was recorded during Microgrid 2021: The World Awakens to Microgrids, a virtual conference held over four weeks in May and June of 2021. The event featured more than 60 speakers across 20 sessions and was designed to educate sustainability and facility managers, energy decision-makers and others curious about microgrids. The overarching theme of the conference focused on the energy, financial, and sustainability benefits that microgrids can offer facilities — and society as a whole. Although this was previously recorded, you’ll find many of the examples and insights are timeless in their strategic value.
The sessions were designed to provide insight into business models, financing, government incentives and other microgrid funding. They also provide guidance when choosing technology and development partners for your microgrid project.
