Christopher Lotspeich, Director of Sustainability Services at Celtic Energy, will be presenting at NESEA’s BuildingEnergy NYC 2015. His presentation, entitled “Microgrid Solutions: From Building to Region” is scheduled for October 15 at 9:00 a.m.
Microgrids are sophisticated backup power systems, both energy supply and demand, to strengthen overall grid resilience. Ranging from single buildings, to neighborhoods, and then to regions, they are able to operate if the main grid is down. This session will highlight a bold NY statewide initiative encouraging microgrid development, and describe both a citywide and regional example of proposed microgrids, their functions, and the institutional concerns to get these systems running.
Mr. Lotspeich’s portion of the presentation will focus on Celtic Energy’s microgrid project with the City of Stamford, Connecticut.
Mr. Lotspeich will be joined by the following speakers:
- Randolph Horner, Energy & Sustainability Correspondent, Hudson Valley Business Journal
- Micah Kotch, Strategic Adviser for Innovation, New York State Energy and Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA)
This session will be held in the Madison Room at the TKP New York Conference Center.
