GHPs Address Six Microgrid Imperatives September 14 2020
"Six microgrid imperatives addressed by geothermal heat pumps" is a 2-page article by NY-GEO member Will Lange, WaterFurnace’s Director of Business Development & Utility Marketing. Published in Distributed Energy magazine, Lange notes:
...microgrids will play a role in the future of energy distribution. How many meters will be on a microgrid in 2030 is hard to predict. Nevertheless, it’s a good bet that there will be quite a few more than today. With that in mind, here are six microgrid paradigms with corresponding design imperatives.
- Power is Precious
- Onsite Sourcing is Best
- Electricity is the Highest Form of Energy
- Disruptions are Your Problem
- Storage is Good
- Climate Resilience is critical
Lange explains these imperatives and notes how geothermal heat pumps help address each of them.
In addition to the web article, WaterFurnace has published a brochure that contains the article and a back page listing seven utility challenges with a sentence for each on how geothermal heating and cooling helps solve that challenge.
