The Syracuse community microgrid, one of 11 NY Prize Stage 2 winners, uses waste-to-energy generation that eases pressure on local landfills. The project is the only Stage 2 winner to rely on waste-to-energy conversion as its primary distributed generation asset. The micogrid would include installing a new 2-MW combined heat and power system and absorption chiller at the SUNY Upstate University Hospital-Community Campus, utility interconnection, upgrades to a distribution circuit, and other system software and controls. While other microgrid projects may require the installation of new generation to achieve self-sufficiency, the Syracuse microgrid proposal uses an existing, large scale generator.
