We all love microgrids everywhere, but it turns out that in remote environments they can be particularly helpful and particularly exciting to lead the energy transition. In this video, we’ll discuss the remote microgrid, the energy transition, and how important it is for us to get these grids right. Bob Kirslis of Eaton will discuss employing microgrid intelligence to help remove communities achieve energy goals. Bryan Urban of Leclanche will share lessons learned in building the largest solar / storage microgrid in the Caribbean. Finally, David Matuseski of Cummins will explore remote microgrid conversion from fossil fuels to renewables.
This session is moderated by Allison Archambault, President of EarthSpark.

This video was recorded during Microgrids as a Recovery Tool During Social and Economic Disruption, a three-day virtual conference held in June of 2020. The conference featured opportunities for businesses, institutions, communities, and homeowners to learn how microgrids aid society during periods of disruption – from pandemics to storms to economic downturns. The conference also featured a number of real world examples that showed microgrids in action. Although this was previously recorded, you’ll find many of the examples and insights are timeless in their strategic value.
- With more than 50 speakers and 15 different sessions, the event covered three key areas:
- The Health, Economic and Environmental Influences Giving Rise to Microgrids
- Who Microgrids Serve: From Business to Education to the Clean Energy Revolution
- How Microgrids Reduce Costs, Cut Carbon and Ensure Power Supply in Tough Times & Places
