The first Regional Forum for 2018  "Increasing Reliability and Resiliency with Microgrids: How to Implement from Design to Interconnection" was held in San Francisco on March 27.

Microgrids are localized grids that have the potential to improve reliability and resiliency of the grid, offer a backup energy solution for communities during grid outages, and contribute to achieving California’s clean energy future. This forum aimed to help local governments, utilities and the private sector understand the benefits of microgrids, what to expect when planning a microgrid and how to navigate some of the complexities of creating a feasible design model. Presentations included an update on the State’s microgrid roadmap, project case studies and resources available to support the design process.
