Microgrid Momentum: Building Efficient, Resilient Power


Microgrids are an innovative solution to reduce emissions, improve electricity system reliability and resilience, and tighten grid security. But financial, legal and technological barriers can slow their deployment.

Please join C2ES, GW Law and business and city leaders as we examine the opportunities and challenges of successful microgrid deployment.

Support for this project was made available by the Duke Energy Renewables Innovation Fund at George Washington University.
