Advance description:

Severe weather events such as hurricanes, torrential rains, snowstorms and wildfires are becoming the norm around the world.  The most significant of those risks for a business that relies on electricity to keep its operations running is one that pertains to the availability and quality of power from the utility electricity grid.  At the same time, electricity is a large and growing component of operation costs for many businesses, especially for data centers, hospitals, military establishments, manufacturing plants, office buildings and other facilities. Many of these facilities are choosing to build MicroGrids incorporating on-site power generation technologies and sophisticated load management to achieve resiliency of their power supply as well as advancing corporate goals around sustainability and operational cost reduction.

Topics will include:

  • Advanced MicroGrid architectures and trade-offs in design choices using distributed generation
  • Recent examples of MicroGrid deployments in the data center, healthcare, retail, manufacturing industry
  • Nano Technology used in the solid oxide fuel cell and its reliability

See you there!
