David Smith Discusses Microgrids at Airport Planning, Design and Construction Symposium
On Wednesday, February 22nd, David Smith will participate in the “Disaster Resiliency” panel as part of the Resiliency track at the 2017 Airport Planning, Design and Construction Symposium in New Orleans, Louisiana.
As part of the workshop, Dave will discuss microgrids and their role in underpinning electric infrastructure resilience. As part of this, he will touch on how microgrids can also reduce energy costs and lower carbon emissions. Dave will draw on Burns’ energy planning work at Denver International Airport, as well as the energy planning and microgrid development work Burns is doing at a large New York metropolitan airport. In both projects, the goal is to improve resilience and disaster recovery, while reducing energy costs and lowering carbon emissions.
