During this one-hour webinar, Greg Thomson of the Clean Coalition and John Kelly of the Perfect Power Institute discussed:

  • A Community Microgrid architecture that improves grid resilience, ensures power to critical services during grid outages, establishes a price responsive grid, and leverages grid services from customers
  • How Community Microgrids create new utility services that enable investment in and integration of distributed energy resources
  • The Hunters Point Project in San Francisco, which sets the stage for any utility to create its own Community Microgrid by optimizing distributed energy resources and dynamic grid solutions to achieve the most cost-effective and sustainable solutions
