06/07/18Florida Energy Resilience through Combined Heat & Power and Microgrids: Workshop

Join us for a day of learning, planning and networking among policymakers, emergency management, healthcare executives, military personnel, municipal water / wastewater facilities, and utility representatives as we gain perspective on the benefits of combined heat and power applications and their role in mitigating the impacts of grid outages, when configured appropriately. 

The most recent natural disasters, Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria, caused many critical infrastructure (CI) facilities in Florida and the Southeast to experience extended power outages, resulting in economic distress, human hardship and loss of life. Some facilities, including hospitals, wastewater treatment plants and food processing facilities, however, averted such failures with combined heat and power (CHP) and microgrids, proven strategies to keep their electric and thermal services running.

CHP systems are a highly efficient form of distributed generation, typically designed to serve a single large building, campus or group of facilities, including microgrids. If the electricity grid is impaired, a properly configured CHP system can continue to operate, mitigating impacts of grid outages until grid power is restored. 

This collaborative workshop is geared toward those that serve as CI facilities and includes presentations and discussions from those that have successfully implemented proven strategies using CHP and microgrids. The event will culminate in an optional tour of a CHP application at the Gainesville Regional Utilities / UF Health - Shands Hospital.

Lunch will be provided, as will transportation to the GRU / UF - Shands Health location.
