Plant Engineers Council: Energy Event
While natural disasters like Hurricane Sandy bring focus to the susceptibility or resiliency of our electrical system to catastrophic events, business owners know too well the implications of diminished power quality and momentary interruptions that they face on a daily basis. New York State has put forth a large number of initiatives seeking to modernize our energy infrastructure from a technical and regulatory perspective from Reforming the Energy Vision and Clean Energy Standard, to NY Prize and the Energy Highway.
In Demystifying Microgrids, a presentation given at the Plant Engineers Council: Energy Event, hosted by the Manufacturers Association of Central New York (MACNY), OBG's Neil Webb and Mohammad Mojdehi, PhD discuss one of these components, microgrids, and the emerging technologies and promise these platforms can offer to businesses seeking to ensure business continuity in their operations.
The Plant Engineers Council: Energy Event took place on February 23, 2017 in Syracuse, New York.
