White Paper: Resiliency Microgrids

Enabling Cost-Effective Solutions to Both Mitigate Outages and Capture Grid Benefits

This report from Navigant Research explains how modular, low cost microgrids can provide long-duration resiliency services to host customer sites while helping integrate variable renewable energy supplies at the grid operations level. The duality such modular microgrids can offer has been clearly demonstrated in the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) market. Can a similar approach be applied to other markets, such as California, which has faced several long duration outages over the last three years?
