Utilizing Microgrids to Meet Energy Demands

September 29, 2023 3:50 pm
2023 Fall Conference

Idaho National Laboratory (INL) is helping to solve the nation’s energy problems with innovative solutions. Microgrids that incorporate various combinations of solar, wind, batteries, and nuclear to provide secure, safe, and resilient carbon pollution-free energy are one critical example of such solutions. Integrated microgrids are capable of being scaled up or down to meet the diverse energy needs of communities that range from small towns to larger cities without adding extensive transmission and distribution lines. This presentation will share findings related to siting microgrids, scaling them to meet varying power demands, footprints, permitting, and safety. Given the nation’s aging energy infrastructure and the costs associated with upgrading transmission and distribution lines that run across vast stretches of the American West, this presentation will be informative for rural and urban planners seeking to increase resiliency while also meeting sustainability goals.
