In this session, attendees will learn how energy producing Demand Response Microgrids turn businesses and cities into power producing revenue streams, while providing protection from rising utility costs and power during public safety power outages often being imposed by big utilities. Businesses, schools and municipalities can be protected and be true operating emergency sanctuaries giving employees, citizens, and stakeholders a place to get assistance and information in times of need. Attendees will hear and see how microgrids can be implemented at minimal cost due to incentives and financing available. Finally attendees will see a real case study showing the investment payback is relatively fast and real because the utilities naturally want the excess energy that demand response microgrids produce because they can't produce enough energy at daily demand peaks to cover customers economically. Demand Response Microgrids help mitigate that problem and give businesses and cities reduction, resiliency and revenue.
