Michael Walton Serving On Technical Panel For Microgrid Symposium
Mike Walton has been selected to participate in the City of Hoboken’s upcoming Microgrid Symposium, taking place November 5th at the Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, New Jersey.
In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, Hoboken was crippled by a lack of power and other critical resources. As a result, the City is pursuing the deployment of a smart resilient microgrid to ensure that power is available during future outages caused by extreme weather events. This symposium aims to generate interest in the Hoboken Microgrid Project, and will focus on Sandia National Laboratories’ presentation of their final micro-grid design study, commissioned by the US Department of Energy. Mike will serve as an expert on the symposium’s technical panel, and will help explore the logistics of microgrid phasing, planning, implementation, and ownership.
