A majority of power outages occur on electrical distribution systems, which affect a large swath of national economy and public health and wellbeing. Microgrids, due to their designed operations to enable continuous power delivery in the face of grid outages, have seen early adoption by local communities, commercial/industrial facilities, campuses and institutions, and utilities. To accelerate their widespread adoption, the DOE Microgrid R&D Program has been undertaking grid integration R&D to further the microgrid value streams that can be realized both within the microgrid service territory and beyond to provide valued services for the interconnected grid.
