Located at the confluence of the Schuylkill and Delaware Rivers, the site was an abandoned shipyard 20 years ago with most of its electric service turned off. Today, it’s a thriving commercial center, powered by one of the nation’s most sophisticated — and evolving — microgrids.

The Navy Yard is home to more than 170 employers, 15,000 workers and a range of businesses that occupy 7.5 million square feet. But it’s become a particular magnet for those that need premium power, such as research facilities.

The microgrid  integrates multiple resources and showcases sophisticated, best-in-class features:

Today, the Navy Yard serves 32 MW of annual peak load and 25-26 MW of annual average peak. But it’s set to grow — a lot — as it prepares for the connected city era.
