Is a Microgrid Right for You?


Microgrids are becoming more and more prevalent for good reason. They are a modern approach to solving multiple energy challenges. But a microgrid’s unique nature can trip up even the most advanced engineers and utility staff. This handbook from S&C Electric is designed to help determine whether a microgrid is the best solution for you and to prepare your team if you decide to pursue building one.

Microgrids and Resiliency – Impact on Public Health

Real Energy Experts from around the world want to share this white paper on how microgrids can improve public health outcomes by making electricity services more resilient by providing uninterrupted access to power. Thus preventing disruptions and damage to critical facilities and infrastructure, including but not limited to hospitals and other medical facilities,facilities where residents are in custody (such as prisons and nursing homes), wastewater treatment or drinking water purification facilities, and cooling centers, among others.

Surviving a Catastrophic Power Outage

This report seeks to address catastrophic power outages in two overarching ways: 1) design a national approach for catastrophic power outages that provides the guidance and incentives needed to take action across all levels of government and industry and down to communities and individuals; and 2) improve our understanding of how cascading failures across critical infrastructure will impact restoration and survival, enabling us to identify further actions needed to mitigate these failures..
