The Metropolitan Council of Governments of Washington, D.C. picked Power Analytics Corp. to assess the viability of microgrid deployment within our nation's capital.
Developing advanced microgrid systems throughout the National Capital Region that integrate and maximize the existing power infrastructure, while optimizing the use of renewable energy sources, advanced energy storage, distribution and control assets, will provide the energy security and stability the region requires.
Power Analytics and its partners, L J Manz Consulting and Microgrid Energy Solutions, will work together to provide consulting services for the planning and development of advanced microgrid solutions in the Washington, D.C. area.
The project will begin this year with an assessment of the feasibility of microgrid deployments throughout the metropolitan district and the possible generation, distribution, renewable resources and control systems that will provide the most cost-effective, resilient and reliable power infrastructure.
Power Analytics' patented solutions for microgrid assessment, development, integration and optimized operations will provide the COG with proven state-of-the-art solutions using Paladin DesignBase to study and design the microgrid and Paladin Microgrid Power Management System, a real-time hardware-agnostic microgrid management software.
Power Analytics was selected for this project due in part to its extensive portfolio of operational and economically viable microgrid systems at some of the nation's most prominent universities and military bases. The company also recently announced their participation in seventeen additional microgrid feasibility projects in communities throughout New York as part of Gov. Cuomo's Reforming the Energy Vision project.
