Using DC Microgrids as a Valuable Distributed Energy Resource

November 2nd • 1:00pm (ET)


Today’s electricity grid is rapidly transforming. More distributed energy resources (DERs) are coming online that are having a material impact in utility grid planning. As DERs are becoming more prevalent, we’re also witnessing innovative methods and practices in which they are being implemented. One such method that challenges an age old debate on an early tech rivalry, The Current War, is grid tied direct current (DC) microgrid technology. The use of DC energy is becoming more prevalent as the industry realizes that DC energy is more efficient and reliable as we have entered the digital age where most devices either generate or use DC power. DC systems remove the need for inefficient power conversion devices to transform energy in buildings, which results in lower cost of solar PV and energy storage ownership, improve building load efficiencies, and provides higher reliability and resiliency. This approach promotes the penetration of renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies to better serve emission reduction and zero net energy goals.

Key Takeaways:

  • Analyze the DC microgrid market potential.
  • Gain knowledge of the multi-perspective value propositions offered by a DC microgrid.
  • Analyze lessons learned from Bosch’s deployment of DC microgrids.
  • Understand the potential alignment of customer preferences with DC microgrid benefits
