DC Microgrids – The Revolution in Energy

Direct current (DC) microgrid technology is redefining how energy is generated and consumed, proving to be more attractive and innovative for commercial building owners than existing state of the art technologies. The DC microgrid removes power conversion devices to lower the cost of solar PV and energy storage ownership, improves building load efficiencies, and provides reliability and resiliency to these facilities. The DC microgrid approach promotes the penetration of renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies to better serve emission reduction and zero net energy goals. Attendees will gain an understanding of DC microgrids and its applicability to their facilities.

 

Key Takeaways:

  1. Analyze the DC microgrid market potential.
  2. Gain knowledge of the multi-perspective value propositions offered by a DC microgrid.
  3. Analyze lessons learned from Bosch’s deployment of DC microgrids.
  4. Understand the potential alignment of customer preferences with DC microgrid benefits.
