Title: Microgrids for Energy Resilience: A Guide to Conceptual Design and Lessons from Defense Projects

Abstract

The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) has long recognized the strategic value of energy to its missions, and the energy resilience of DoD installations has become of increasing concern. Department of Defense Instruction 4170 requires installations to be more energy resilient, and as a result, many installations are pursuing microgrids to meet their energy resiliency goals and requirements. This report provides a resource for stakeholders involved in analyzing and developing microgrid projects at DoD installations. It builds on experience and lessons from the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in supporting numerous DoD projects, including the microgrid at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar.(1)The report is structured following NREL's microgrid design process.
