MICROGRID PILOT PROJECT AT US AIR FORCE BASE
In a partnership with Sandia National Laboratories, Emera Technologies is developing and testing a proprietary microgrid concept to deliver high levels of renewables and unparalleled reliability to customers. The concept is being developed and deployed in a pilot project underway at Kirtland Air Force Base in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
The system will provide a total power system solution for new housing developments and facilities within the base and nearby neighbourhoods. This innovative technology links renewable generation and storage and allows energy to be shared throughout the neighbourhood through a specialized control system using direct current technology. The unique modular design allows for easy assembly and deployment. Once the pilot project is complete, commercial deployment will follow.
