David Smith Highlighting Microgrid at The Navy Yard During US-China Smart Grid Workshop
Dave Smith is participating in the US-China Climate Change Working Group’s (CCWG) Smart Grid Workshop on June 28-29 at the Navy Yard in Philadelphia. At the workshop, energy experts from the US and China will discuss the development of smart grid and microgrid technology using case studies, best practices, and lessons learned. Much like last year’s workshop in Beijing, China, the goal of this year’s CCWG Smart Grid Workshop is to enhance communication and cooperation between the two countries in the areas of smart grid, energy efficiency, and power system resiliency.
The CCWG Smart Grid Workshop is organized jointly by China’s National Energy Administration (NEA), the US Department of Energy (DOE), and the US Trade and Development Agency (USTDA). At the workshop, Dave will present for discussion the costs and benefits of the smart energy infrastructure and advanced microgrid that Burns, together with Alstom Grid, designed and is implementing at the Philadelphia Navy Yard. Seen by DOE and industry experts as a model for future energy infrastructure, The Navy Yard is modernizing and expanding its electric grid as the foundation for a Smart Energy Campus that will reduce energy consumption, lower emissions and enhance power reliability and resilience in preparation for significant real estate growth.
