The new series on energy system integration for data centers

How microgrids are increasing reliance, controlling energy costs and improving sustainability

With the demand for electricity soaring worldwide and the advent of extreme weather growing in frequency and intensity, the impact of climate change is increasing the fragility of the electricity grid.

As the maintenance of grid infrastructure remains costly and complex for ISOs, TSOs, and utility firms, power independence can be explored through a local network of generators combined with energy storage. This session will outline the options for ‘traditional’ grid alternatives, outline the value microgrids offer, challenges to implementation, and provide a look at some of the best-of-breed examples of a self-sufficient energy system.


Roundtable: Microgrids: what is holding back implementation?
