The fourth National Conference on Microgrids will take place on April 13 – 15, 2016 in Kansas City, MO. This three-day conference will focus on capitalizing on Microgrids for improved system energy efficiency, reliability and providing enabling technologies for grid independence.
Featuring a Tour of Milbank’s Robert F. Waldrop Center for Research and Development in Kansas City, MO
Conference members will tour Milbank’s Robert F. Waldrop Center for Research and Development in Kansas City, MO. The 6,000 square foot site houses the company’s UL Testing and Research & Development labs, as well as the training and technology center.
The highlight of the tour will include an interactive presentation of Milbank’s state of the art smart technology for managing microgrids – SynapSuite. Milbank will also feature case studies of the patented technology in action with real time data and results. SynapSuite starts by connecting each generation source of a microgrid, including solar, wind, fuel cell, generators, batteries and more. SynapSuite then enters a learning phase, in which it monitors and analyzes usage patterns and available energy input. Finally, SynapSuite uses predictive analytics to distribute energy and reduce loads to optimize use and intelligently manage energy for consistent, low-cost power.
Learn how Milbank integrated SynapSuite at the Missouri University of Science & Technology Solar Village microgrid, as well has how our technology supports the microgrids at the Global Orphan Project complexes in Haiti.
Featuring a Tour of the Rodman Innovation Pavilion at Black & Veatch World Headquarters
At Black & Veatch, we have the expertise and resources to deliver your entire microgrid solution. We believe in the technology so much that we installed a microgrid in our Rodman Innovation Pavilion at our World Headquarters in Overland Park, KS. This 30,000-square-foot building features a microturbine, solar PV, geothermal technology, and battery storage.
