TRB will conduct a webinar on Wednesday, March 20, 2019, from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET that features research from the Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) Synthesis 91/Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP) Synthesis 137: Microgrids and Their Application for Airports and Public Transit.
The research describes microgrids that airports and public transit agencies can implement to increase the reliability and resilience of their critical infrastructure. A microgrid is described as a collection of controllable loads, on-site energy resources, local energy storage systems, and an overarching control system that is able to operate both in conjunction with, and separately from, the grid. Developments in control technologies have seen advanced microgrid controllers expand microgrid functionality, creating new value streams and revenue opportunities, and increasing microgrid viability to more sectors, including airports. This webinar will describe the benefits, challenges, costs, revenue streams, and ownership structures of microgrids that airports can apply to increase the resilience of their critical infrastructure.
This webinar is sponsored by the Airport Cooperative Research Program. There is no fee to attend this webinar; however, sign into MyTRB.org to view registration information.
Moderated by: Rima Kasia Oueid, U.S. Department of Energy
