The Rhode Island Office of Energy Resources and the US Department of Energy will provide an overview of microgrids. Topics include a high-level overview of what they are, what the use cases are and how they can provide resiliency benefits for municipalities. OER will also present on the newly released Request for Information to Support Program Design for Microgrids for Resilient Communities which seeks to learn directly from municipalities what is needed within their jurisdictions to facilitate, support, and provide resources for resilient community microgrids.
