Surviving the Storm- Resiliency, Backup and Balancing: Keeping the Lights on in the Most Demanding Times
Series: Pushing the Power Generation Envelope
The 2020 Hurricane season is predicted to be one of the worst in recent history, and it has certainly offered a flurry of furious challenges to utilities and power producers already. Mission-critical facilities like hospitals, rehab center and police stations don’t have the option for prolonged outages, so local or on-site power must be in place to bridge the gap in the event of a major electric transmission outage due to a hurricane or other natural event. Utilities, mission-critical end-use customers and the equipment providers can talk about overcoming the loss of grid power, as well as how on-site power offers them versatility in the future. These facilities are not only important for Resiliency and Reliability but also provide Flexibility to enable the growth of renewable generation in a future power system. This webinar will explore how two utilities are using gas fired reciprocating engine technology to achieve these goals.
