How to Build a Resilient Uninterruptible Microgrid Using Energy Storage

Commercial, industrial and military customers are looking to microgrids to provide reliable energy during a grid outage and enhance energy independence based on locally produced clean energy.

But not all microgrids are alike. Nor do they always provide the resiliency or energy independence benefits that customers are seeking. Saft will discuss how microgrids work: how to define different levels of resiliency, what it takes to successfully operate an islanded microgrid with high levels of renewables, and what pitfalls to avoid.

The webinar will dive into how battery energy storage integrated with Saft-Go Electric’s microgrid controller creates resilient, uninterruptible microgrids for grid-tied and remote applications. Customers will share their experience and lessons learned in implementing and operating microgrid solutions.

Strategies in Climate Risk Mitigation: Keeping the Power On with Advanced Solar Software

Extreme weather-related losses are threatening the viability of insurer’s books and investment portfolios. While power generation is among the top 10 worst performing insurance business lines, catastrophic risk profiles within this sector are not created equally. On the one hand, conventional power plants intensify climate change and extreme weather events; on the other, solar power and other renewable energy assets deescalate climate risks.

Join this GTM webinar to hear experts Michael Kolodner from Marsh, Alex Roedel from Nextracker, and Cherif Kedir from RETC discuss climate threats to utility scale solar and how advanced software technologies may offer mitigation opportunities for underwriters and solar developers.

The Danger of the PV Tracker Short View

For years, solar developers have focused on one thing: the upfront capital expense (CAPEX) of their solar project. In some ways, this is an understandable impulse, but as solar power purchase agreement (PPA) prices hit all-time lows, the competition among EPCs to offer rock bottom CAPEX has been fierce. 

 
While lower upfront CAPEX has been a critical aspect of the industry's growth, it also has meant that some equipment suppliers – including many tracker manufacturers – have tried to gobble up market share by offering low-cost products. Despite the low cost, these products often don't have the proven reliability of top-tier hardware to last the 30+ year design life their owners demand.
