Integrating Renewable Energy into the Diesel Microgrids of Rural Alaska
Wednesday, March 5th, 5:30pm – 6:30pm
UAF Schaible Auditorium

As part of the UAF Research Showcase seminar series organized by the Undergraduate Research and Scholarly Activity Program (URSA), Dr. Marc Mueller-Stoffels will present his work regarding the integration of renewable energy into small grid systems, March 5th.

Marc will provide an overview of  ACEP’s Power Systems Integration Program while covering the basics of renewable energy integration in diesel-powered microgrids.  He will also discuss his current study for the City of Nome on integrating 2 MW of geothermal power from Pilgrim Hot Springs with the city’s wind-diesel power system, and highlight URSA’s involvement with ACEP through the UAF Resource Assessment and Feasibility Study.
