The debate over what constitutes a fully modern grid is emerging. Utility and technology experts are beginning to openly discuss the need for substantial changes to the way we design, build and operate the power generation and delivery system. They recognize that a modern grid will be broadly judged by its reliability, security, quality and cost of service to the consumer, and by its impact on the environment. No question, it's a tough road ahead. Horizon Energy Group is assisting industrials, universities and communities to make better and more efficient energy choices. In this presentation, John Westerman, Vice President, describes the opportunities, issues and answers that are present when planning for and implementing Microgrids as a solution.
