May Forum: Resilient Solar
May 16, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm$4 - $10
As the solar energy industry continues its breakneck growth, more questions arise around how we can use this intermittent source of energy and still have reliably consistent power. This issue becomes even more critical in an era of more frequent and catastrophic climate events that can and have taken down the electrical grid.
In 2018, we are seeing the rise of Resilient Solar: the pairing of solar energy systems with complementary technologies to provide stable, continuous power to buildings and communities even when the electrical grid is down as we experienced in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy and Hurricane Maria, among other events in recent years. We’re talking about energy storage technologies, community solar, on-site generation, microgrids, cogeneration (combined heat & power) and more.
As startups, developers, tech companies, governments, utilities, and community groups dedicate themselves to creating new solutions towards building a resilient energy infrastructure, we invite you to join the conversation on May 16th at GreenHomeNYC’s May forum hosted by Urban Future Lab, to meet experts, ask questions, and learn about what’s happening here in NYC and beyond.
