Virtual Microgrid Tour: Mission Critical Microgrid
Learn how the Defense Logistics Agency Energy (DLA) and the United States Air Force is implementing an energy security and resiliency infrastructure project at Joint Base San Antonio (JBSA) in Texas. Join us for a virtual tour of a base that implemented energy efficiency and reliability upgrades, then leveraged these comprehensive energy savings to build an innovative microgrid and distributed generation architecture to provide energy assurance in support of mission critical operations. This project integrates on-site renewable energy generation, battery energy storage, microgrid technologies, and more to allow for a seamless transition to backup power in order to maintain operation of critical loads.

Why the Electric Grid is No Longer Enough
From wildfires to digital dependence, a range of natural and societal changes requires electric reliability beyond what the grid alone can offer. Power outages are becoming more and more expensive. What does reliance on the grid cost your operation — and how can you get the cost down? (Panel discussion)
