Solar PV and distributed generation resources combine for sustainable-resilient micro-grids for today’s facilities. Three presentations offer broad overviews of micro-grid design. The first is a 1MW PV analysis plus the firming power of a gas generator or LiION battery to achieve 8 hours of on-peak demand savings in Michigan. Next, we look at NFPA code issues surrounding alternate energy sources with micro-grids serving healthcare facilities. These issues are broadly applicable across all building types. Lastly, we discuss site evaluation and the integration of micro-grids to best match facility loads, using a successful Wisconsin project to illustrate proper design and control.
