Urban Sustainability Directors Network Resilience Hub
Working with the Urban Sustainability Directors Network, American Microgrid Solutions is optimizing Hybrid Resilient Power Systems for USDN Resiliency Hub projects. Resilience Hubs are community-building facilities augmented to support residents, typically in the most vulnerable communities, and coordinate resource distribution and services before, during or after a natural hazard event. More than locations for supplies, communications, and resources, USDN’s Resilience Hubs will be mechanisms for community revitalization and community empowerment. Resilience Hubs offer an exciting opportunity to advance local goals related to equity, GHG reductions, and resilience in a manner that meets other important community needs. American Microgrid Solutions working with USDN to optimize Hybrid Resilient Power Systems that incorporate solar PV and storage with other sources of power to keep these facilities running during power outages and natural hazard events.
Clean Energy Group Resilient Power Project
American Microgrid Solutions works with the Clean Energy Group’s Resilient Power Project to support community resilience through The Resilient Power Project, a joint initiative of Clean Energy Group and Meridian Institute. This initiative focuses on accelerating market development of resilient, clean energy solutions for affordable housing and critical community facilities in low-income and disadvantaged communities. The Project is targeted to the deployment of solar PV combined with energy storage (solar+storage) – to power essential services during extended power outages and to reduce the economic burden of energy costs in vulnerable communities. The goal is to further clean energy equity by ensuring that all communities have access to the economic, health, and resiliency benefits that solar and energy storage technologies can provide.
