Join IEEE Philadelphia and Burns’ Energy Experts for an Introduction to Microgrids
A desire for increased power resilience and an awareness of economic drivers have brought microgrids to the forefront of today’s power conversation. States like New York and Connecticut are exploring large-scale microgrids for improved resilience and reliability, as well as reduced capital cost and environmental impact.
Join IEEE Philadelphia on Wednesday, September 14th from 11:45am to 1pm at Burns’ offices (2001 Market Street, Suite 600) to learn about the basics of microgrids and the future of this exciting technology.
From 12:00-12:30pm, Dave Smith, Burns’ Director of Energy Services, will give a high-level overview of microgrid technology. At 12:30, Chris Vaile, Electrical Engineering Associate, will follow-up with the discussion “Utilizing DER CAM to Model Microgrid Technology”. DER–CAM, or Distributed Energy Resources Customer Adoption Model, is a microgrid optimization modeling tool used to assess and design potential microgrid projects. This software is designed to holistically size, configure and dispatch a wide variety of energy generation and storage resources based on fuel costs, electric tariffs, resilience objectives and carbon reduction goals.
