In this video, we’ll look at look at what we’re doing today around adapting distributed generation projects that include both energy storage and renewable energy. We’ll also look at how we’re going to be able to coordinate those projects with the existing grid. Matt Baker of Typhoon HIL discusses overcoming the challenges of integrating distributed energy and energy storage using hardware-in-the-loop. Andrew Kruse of Underwriters Laboratory and Gregg Reed of the University of Pittsburgh’s Energy GRID Institute talk about the challenges of integrating wind and energy storage at the University of Pittsburgh. Finally, Tim Kelley of Russelectric will share insights around integrating energy storage and solar with existing generation assets.

This session is moderated by Tom Drake, Senior Sales Manager, at Rolls-Royce MTU.

Featured speakers include:

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 microgrids 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. Although this was previously recorded, you’ll find many of the examples and insights are timeless in their strategic value.

With more than 50 speakers and 15 different sessions, the event covered three key 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
