Lots of new microgrid projects are coming on stream in 2022. Here are a few of the most exciting and potentially game-changing as we move along the energy transition timeline.
Maryland’s electric bus depot microgrid starts construction
Montgomery County, Maryland, is creating another smart project for the area. The county already operates microgrids at correctional and public safety facilities. Now it’s commissioning a 5.6 MW microgrid at the Brookville Smart Energy Bus Depot with distributed energy generation, energy storage and over two MW of charging capacity. AlphaStruxure, a partnership between Schneider Electric and the Carlyle Group, designed and will build and deliver the project for the local authority, using an energy-as-a-service model that doesn’t require the county to fund it upfront. The jurisdiction plans to reach net-zero emissions by 2035 and the microgrid is part of the scheme to reach that target.
