Learn how the Defense Logistics Agency Energy and the United States Air Force are implementing an energy security and resiliency infrastructure project at Joint Base San Antonio in Texas. In this virtual microgrid tour, we’ll see how Joint Base San Antonio 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.

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.
