How lessons from a microgrid project can lead the way to decarbonizing the electric grid
A Washington State utility company uses automation, artificial intelligence and a smart energy management system to power the pilot project.
A microgrid project funded with a $3.5 million grant from the state of Washington has helped the Snohomish Public Utility District investigate the role that data and automation need to play in grid modernization.
The project also has helped SnoPUD look at how to deal with the integration of renewable generation and the technical and communication challenges presented by battery storage.
Leah Kaffine, a principal technical consultant with Hitachi ABB Power Grids, which built the microgrid, said utilities can use artificial intelligence to help manage their grids as more renewable generation is integrated into them.
