Illuminating the Way Forward for On-Site Power: Exploration of a Microgrid Testing Center

On-Site Power Microgrid Testing Center Resiliency Power Integration Center

Commercial, industrial and mission-critical industries all face the pressure of keeping the lights on in the face of an aging electric grid.

According to the White House, 70% of the nation’s transmission lines are more than 25 years old, and nearly 75% of all power outages are caused by weather-related events, such as snowstorms, hurricanes, tornadoes and wildfires.

Factor in the rising rate of electrification initiatives in the U.S., and companies are placed in an increasingly vulnerable position. They are looking to microgrids for on-site power resiliency, and those microgrids need to be tested and validated because of the incorporation of multiple generation resources and interconnection.

While most companies can’t directly impact grid resiliency, many are learning to support their own energy security by installing microgrids.

Microgrids are self-sufficient energy systems that provide electricity, heat and/or cooling to a discrete geographic footprint, such as a college campus, hospital complex, data center or manufacturing facility.

Microgrids can include multiple energy technologies, such as solar panels, wind turbines, combined heat and power, generators and fuel cells to produce their own power. Oftentimes, these systems also contain an energy storage system to store excess power for later use during a power emergency, such as a grid failure.
