Typical steps for analysis of buildings to potentially be included in a microgrid project for improving resiliency and efficiency: thermal/electrical energy consumption ratio (current and anticipated), type/age of existing equipment, connection feasibility of multiple buildings to Distributed Energy Resources (DERs), and physical space available. Capital investment, possible incentives, interconnection with existing utilities, as well as cooperation and interest of building owners must also be weighed against specific criteria.
