Microgrids are a growing area of interest for campuses and local governments who are looking for more resilient infrastructure; however they need robust energy generation sources to be successful at achieving this goal. This presentation will provide an overview of how different types of clean energy generation such as combined heat and power (CHP), renewables, district energy, and energy storage can be integrated into a microgrid that interacts seamlessly with the grid of the future. Case studies of how CHP enabled recent college microgrid projects at UC San Diego and Wesleyan University will be presented, along with key financial incentives currently available for microgrid applications. The air emissions and other benefits from integrating a variety of clean energy technologies into a microgrid will also be discussed.
