Combined Heat and Power as a Source of Resilience in Microgrids

When:  Nov 13, 2018 from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM (ET)



Microgrids with CHP  (DE-CHP) has proven to be a cost effective way to improve energy efficiency. CHP-based microgrids can also increase the level of resilience of many facilities to extreme weather events and other power disruptions,  providing reliable and resilient electricity as well thermal and cooling services. This joint U.S. DOE Southcentral Combined Heat and Power Technical Assistance Partnership (SC CHP TAP) and IDEA webinar will present strategies, best  practices, decision variables and real world microgrids that are pushing the boundaries of resilience.
