Oftentimes, when businesses, institutions, and communities are researching microgrids, they don’t know quite how to choose the resources they want to use. Should it be renewable energy, should they have energy storage, natural gas, fuel cells, or a combination of all the above? In this video, Microgrid Knowledge editors interview the experts. We asked them to explain how you should think about these resources when you first start researching a microgrid. How do you choose the right mix of generation resources for your microgrid? What is the upside and downside of each? What role do they play in your microgrid?
This session is moderated by Elisa Wood, editor-in-chief of Microgrid Knowledge.

This video was recorded during Microgrid 2021: The World Awakens to Microgrids, a virtual conference held over four weeks in May and June of 2021. The event featured more than 60 speakers across 20 sessions and was designed to educate sustainability and facility managers, energy decision-makers and others curious about microgrids. The overarching theme of the conference focused on the energy, financial, and sustainability benefits that microgrids can offer facilities — and society as a whole. Although this was previously recorded, you’ll find many of the examples and insights are timeless in their strategic value.
The sessions were designed to provide insight into business models, financing, government incentives and other microgrid funding. They also provide guidance when choosing technology and development partners for your microgrid project.
