Improving Resilience Through Microgrids & Battery Storage

The utilization of microgrids plus battery storage is seen increasingly by public and private organizations as the wave of the future to help ensure energy reliability and security in the age of extreme weather events and cyber security threats. Our partner is Resilient Virginia, which works to accelerate resiliency planning in Virginia communities.

This event, which will take place at the Edison Electric Institute, will feature speakers and topics such as:

  • technology that supports the utility/microgrid interface
  • tools for developers to assess microgrid viability based on existing infrastructure and regulations
  • how local governments in the DMV region are working with private companies to make microgrid development financially feasible
  • how regional Department of Defense installations are including microgrids as part of their energy security systems

A number of companies and organizations will be exhibiting their solutions.  

Speakers:  Dr. John Caldwell, Director of Economics at the Edison Electric Institute, and others to be announced.
