The UCSD Microgrid - Showing the Future of Electricity by RMI

Rocky Mountain Institute visited the University of California, San Diego to study and document the "microgrid" that controls and integrates electricity supply and demand on the campus. UCSD's microgrid is one of the best examples of an electricity network that provides local control yet is interconnected with the larger electricity grid. At UCSD, the microgrid provides the ability to manage 42 megawatts of generating capacity.

Learn how RMI is seeking to identify and amplify the kinds of solutions that have the potential to transform the electricity system by visiting http://www.rmi.org/electricity

ncluding a central cogeneration plant, an array of solar photovoltaic installations and a fuel cell that operates on natural gas reclaimed from a landfill site.
