Microgrids powered by clean, distributed energy resources (DERs) that supply continuous power during grid outages, can increase grid resiliency and security, and provide economic and environmental benefits to HBCUs by allowing participation in utility savings programs that reduce overall energy use and dependence on fossil fuel energy resources.
Pecan Street developed this toolkit to support HBCUs across the United States evaluate and participate in clean energy markets. The toolkit provides background information about the capabilities of current and future DER technologies, tools and methods for facilities owners and operators to understand the costs of their current energy infrastructure, and recommendations on how best to use DERs to improve the economic sustainability of the campus infrastructure and provide resiliency to the campus and surrounding communities.
