LBNL is currently leading a joint research project to develop a microgrid sizing tool addressing resiliency and reliability needs specific to remote off-grid communities, such as those often found in remote locations in Alaska.

As part of this project's outreach efforts, the LBNL microgrid team offered a training workshop in collaboration with the Alaska Center for Energy & Power, as a parallel activity to the 2018 Alaska Rural Energy Conference.



This workshop was attended by representatives from the Alaska Energy Authority, the Fairbanks North Star Borough, and the Alaska Center for Energy & Power, and covered different aspects of the modeling tool developed under this project, as well as multiple Alaska case studies.
