Power outages affect airport operations in myriad ways. One solution to mitigate the risks associated with power outages is for airports to increase their self-sufficiency for power generation. TRB is hosting a webinar on Monday, December 6, 2021 from 2:00 to 3:30 PM Eastern that will introduce the Airport Microgrid Implementation Toolkit in detail. Presenters will explain how microgrids work and discuss important considerations for successful implementation at a specific location. The Airport Microgrid Implementation Toolkit is a web-based resource to inform airport stakeholders about the capabilities of microgrids. Presenters will also highlight the results from a case study conducted with Massport’s Hanscom airport.

The webinar features research from ACRP Report 228: Airport Microgrid Implementation Toolkit.
