ICEPAG 2019: Microgrid Global Summit – Mar. 26-28

Held at the University of California, Irvine, ICEPAG 2019 supports the annual presentation of the Microgrid Global Summit, an update on the technologies, applications, and roles of microgrids in the smart grid of the future. The 3-day Colloquium is a valued balance of academia, industry, national laboratories, and government agencies actively engaged in the evolution…

Largest California solar-plus-storage project agreement signed

“Canadian Solar Inc. recently announced its wholly owned subsidiary, Recurrent Energy LLC, has signed two 15-year power purchase agreements (PPAs) with Silicon Valley Clean Energy and Monterey Bay Community Power for a 150-megawatt solar power system with 180 megawatt-hours (MWh) of battery storage. This joint procurement effort represents the largest contracted solar-plus-storage project in California…

SV Clean Energy signs major contracts for California’s largest solar-plus-storage projects

“Silicon Valley Clean Energy (SVCE) signed two long-term agreements for the largest utility-scale, solar-plus-storage projects to be built in California. The two projects will provide 153 megawatts (MW) of solar and 47 MW of storage and will be developed by Electricité de France (EDF) and Recurrent Energy Development Holdings, LLC. (Recurrent). These projects will come…

Australian university to trial solar storage microgrid with EV charging

“The Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) has partnered with Monash University and technology provider Indra Australia to trial a microgrid as a first step to powering Monash’s Clayton campus entirely with renewable energy by 2030. The pilot will test the microgrid across the campus in southeast Melbourne using Indra’s Ingrid Advanced Grid Management (AGM) software…

Schneider electric microgrid to service Long Beach, California community by creating energy resilience at port

“Schneider Electric, the global specialist in the digital transformation of energy management and automation, today announced an agreement to design, engineer and build a new microgrid that will enable critical energy resilience at the Port of Long Beach in the city of Long Beach, California. Schneider Electric will create a microgrid technology demonstration which will…

Smart grids show their power in adversity

“By 2026, according to the consultancy’s projections, the ratio of new power supplied by microgrids to new centralised capacity will be more than three to one. At that point, the global market for hardware, system controls and integration with existing grid infrastructure will be worth $26bn. Ensuring that there is a resilient power grid in…

California Approves $5M Grant for Microgrid at Naval War Center

“The project comes as the industry increasingly strives to reduce the amount of customization in microgrid development as a way to drive down costs. In this case, researchers hope to create a replicable model that demonstrates how to avoid electric instabilities during transitions between grid connected and islanding modes.” Click here to read more from Microgrid…

Building resilience with microgrids and smart energy

“In some regions, electric grids have increased capacity, become more reliable, much better at integrating distributed renewables, smarter and more resilient. In other places, serious investment is needed to reduce the risk of failure in storms and malfunctions that cause everything from wildfires to millions living for days in darkness. Microgrids are a growing part…
