Energy 2-for-1 Special: Securing Energy Resiliency - CHP and Microgrids

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Course 1 - Combined Heat and Power

According to recent reports, emergency power outages cost U.S. industries an average of $40-$150 billionevery year. As a result, energy resiliency is (or should be) on the agenda of every organization. And at the forefront of this discussion is Combined Heat and Power (CHP, aka cogeneration) thanks to its ability to simultaneously produce electric and thermal energy from a single fuel source offering organizations a cost-effective and efficient heating, cooling, and energy resiliency solution…in AND out of emergencies.

Join Anne Hampson to explore the opportunities in combined heat and power (CHP, aka cogeneration), its applications for critical facilities, and how you can assess and implement CHP systems at your facility to reduce your energy spend and secure your energy resiliency.

In this online training webinar, we’ll begin by exploring combined heat and power (CHP or cogeneration), how it works, its applications, and its benefits. Within this discussion, we’ll take a special look at CHP as a reliable solution for today’s energy resiliency and grid congestion problems, and what industries are good candidates for CHP installations. We’ll also discuss combined heat and power’s economic and environmental benefits, including: energy efficiency, reliability, and cost-savings, as well as reduced CO2 emissions and grid congestion. Following this discussion, Hampson will outline how to assess your facility as a candidate for CHP, the available opportunities, and the best practices for successful development and implementation of CHP at your facility. Finally, we’ll discuss the emerging economic and policy drivers for the exploding growth of CHP – including the recent U.S. executive order to accelerate CHP investments – and what these mean for you.

By the end of this webinar, you will have a good understanding of what combined heat and power (CHP) is, how it can be a solution to your energy reliability challenges, and how you can go about implementing CHP at your facility.

Learning Objectives 
Attendees can expect the discussion and education of the following learning objectives:

  • Learn what CHP is, how it works, its opportunities, and the applications it serves.
  • Understand how CHP can provide energy reliability and resiliency to a facility.
  • Learn what to look for when assessing your facility for CHP and how to implement CHP at your facility.
  • Understand the emissions and energy cost savings benefits of CHP, and the economic and legislative drivers.

Course 2 - Deploying Solar + Storage Microgrids

With the recent advancements in coupling solar/photovoltaic (PV) systems with energy storage, many organizationsfrom government to hospitalsare requiring interactive microgrid capability for their solar systems. The challenge? Providing reliable battery backup and energy storage capabilities for solar systems in a cost-effective way.

Join C. J. Colavito—PowerGen's 2014 Paper of the Year author—to explore solar microgrids with interactive battery bank installations, including: how they work, design considerations and specifications, implementation best practices, and how you can install a solar microgrid system with interactive energy storage at your site.

In this online training webinar, we'll explore the different types of solar microgrid with interactive battery bank installations, how each works, how it differs from inactive designs, and the pros and cons of each. Building on this discussion, we'll take a look at the key design, installation, and safety considerations and specifications for interactive solar microgrid systems (e.g., energy storage, site evaluation, calculations, point of interconnection, sequence of operations, etc.) and how these differ from grid-tied solar PV systems. Colavito will outline the step-by-step design and installation process and best practices for implementing a solar microgrid with interactive energy storage at your site. Additionally, we'll take a look at Colavito's lessons learned (in design, engineering, project management, logistics, and safety) from his recent interactive solar microgrid with interactive battery bank installation and the resulting best practices to apply to your project. Finally, we'll explore the financial opportunities of these systems to generate revenues, capture incentives, take advantage of federal tax credits, and create savings through the energy storage system.

Learning Objectives
Attendees can expect the discussion and education of the following learning objectives:

  • Learn how a solar microgrid with interactive battery bank installation is set up and works, and how it differs from inactive designs.
  • Learn the main types of solar microgrid system configurations and the pros and cons of each.
  • Understand the design, installation, and safety considerations and specifications (e.g., energy storage technology, site evaluation, capacity, etc.) that differ from grid-tied solar PV systems.
  • Learn how to implement a solar microgrid with interactive battery bank at your site.
  • Learn how to develop and use a sequence of operations (SOO) to manage project stakeholders and define performance goals.
  • Gain the real-world lessons learned from a recent solar microgrid with interactive battery bank installation and the resulting best practices.
  • Learn the key markets and incentive program opportunities (e.g., financial, tax credit, etc.).
