History tells us that disasters tend to spur new interest in reliable energy. COVID-19 is no different, given the strain it has placed on hospitals, data centers and delivery systems. On top of that, society faces new economic pressures, making the sophisticated energy cost management offered by microgrids even more important. In this video featuring three top industry experts, we’ll explore how microgrids can provide reliable energy in times of societal disruption and the role they can play in the recovery.
The moderator for this video session is Elisa Wood, editor-in-chief of Microgrid Knowledge.

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 microgrid technology can 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.
With more than 50 speakers and 15 different sessions, the event covered three key topic 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
Although this was previously recorded, you’ll find many of the examples and insights are timeless in their strategic value.
