10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Event Type

Microgrids and Energy Storage for Emergency Grid Resilience Webinar Series, presented by the U.S. DOE Office of Electricity Energy Storage Program, Iowa State University Electric Power Research Center, and Sandia National Laboratories

As extreme weather events and other potential disruptions to the electric grid increase in frequency, the need for new technologies and approaches for providing resilience in the grid increase as well. This five-session series will explore technologies, policies, economics, applications, and case studies associated with microgrids and battery energy storage as options to help emergency management agencies provide greater electricity resilience across the states in FEMA Regions 5 (IL, IN, MI, MN, OH, WI) & 7 (IA, KS, MO, NE).
