MGL has participated in a number of Microgrid projects with partners like LBNL (Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory), EPRI (Electric Power Research Institute) and Navigant Consulting. Our projects are spread across the US and Canada: California, Mississippi, New York, Tennessee, Washington D.C., etc.
Some of our Microgrid projects are listed below:
US Army base at Fort Hunter Liggett (FHL), CA
Worked with LBNL in the assessment, planning, modeling and conceptual design of a Microgrid at Fort Hunter Liggett (FHL), an army base in California. This is a renewable energy intensive Microgrid. The Microgrid operates in both grid-connected and islanded modes, and can participate in energy markets.
We are currently working with LBNL, EPRI, GE, One Cycle Controls, and Customized Energy Solutions to implement a Microgrid energy management and control system at FHL, under an ESTCP funded project.
US Army base at Camp Parks, CA
MGL is part of the team, lead by LBNL, that will be implementing a renewable intensive Microgrid that operates in both grid-connected and islanded modes, and can participate in energy markets. MGL worked on the assessment, planning, modeling and conceptual design of a base-wide, renewable intensive microgrid at Camp Parks, an army base in California.
University of Mississippi Medical Center (UMMC), Jackson, MS
Supported EPRI in assessment, planning, DER-CAM modeling and conceptual design of a 20 MW campus Microgrid at the University of Mississippi Medial Center in Jackson MS. The Microgrid consists of solar PV, battery energy storage, and CHP.
Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus (BNMC) and residential neighborhood in Buffalo, NY
Worked with EPRI in assessment, planning, DER-CAM modeling and conceptual design of a 30 MW campus Microgrid complex with multiple facilities for the Buffalo National Medical Center(BNMC) campus. The Microgrid consists of solar PV, storage, and Combined Heat and Power system and also serves the adjacent residential neighborhood.
Cherokee Farms Business Park and Innovation Campus, Knoxville, TN
Worked with EPRI in developing a microgrid concept for the over 10 MW campus microgrid at a large business park on the University of Tennessee campus in Knoxville, TN. For this project, we supported EPRI with site assessment and conceptual design.
Performance Evaluation of a District Heating/Cooling Plant, Washington D.C.
Supported LBNL in evaluating the operation of a district heating/cooling facility in Washington D.C. as a feasibility study. This was done in partnership with ICHPS (Integrated CHP Systems Corp.), who provided expertise in the thermal engineering aspects. In the case of the district heating/cooling facility in Washington D.C., we were called in to assess the current operations, and we made a number of recommendations.
