The medical sector is increasingly focused on resiliency due to grid outage concerns that may be exacerbated due to the growing impact of climate change. Building resilient systems can provide electricity to critical operations that benefits the safety and security of patients during inclement weather or grid outages. This session addresses the energy side of resiliency through a discussion on the use of comprehensive microgrid systems, including cogeneration, as resilient and efficient energy solutions for the health care sector. Energy industry leaders with microgrid and cogeneration experience will present the benefits of microgrid services for resiliency, energy efficiency, storage, and renewable energy.
John Andersen will moderate this panel discussion which will include insights from G&W Electric, GreenCity Power, Engie, and Intelligent Generation.
This panel discussion will focus on the design, financing, benefits, and performance of intelligent microgrid and combined heat and power systems. Panelists will present case studies on the performance of resilient systems during the 2017 storm season. Health care representatives will outline their insights into microgrid solutions as part of a resilient energy strategy for the health care sector.
NOTE: This is a 90 minute session.
