Microgrids might seem like something relegated to rural areas and anywhere that it might be challenging to connect to the grid, but when it comes to energy resiliency, the Department of Defense (DoD) may start embracing this technology. So why is the DoD looking at microgrids to preserve the countrywide electrical grid?
