DOE Announces Microgrid Competition to Support Community Resiliency

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) recently announced the Microgrid 2014 MVP Challenge, a competition to support resiliency and adaptation in communities across the nation.

Under this Challenge, organizations with operational microgrids are encouraged to submit details about their microgrid designs and operational data for judging. The operational data will help the Department learn more about the performance and value of microgrids and capture practical information that can be shared about how microgrids are being used to make communities more resilient. As part of the Obama Administration’s Climate Action Plan, the competition advances the President’s commitment to helping the nation prepare for the impacts of climate change. The deadline for applying is August 29, 2014.
