Course Description 

Many industry experts consider microgrids to embody the future of electrical energy delivery systems. When configured correctly, they offer sustainable solutions to meet energy resiliency needs. This training program will provide an in-depth overview of microgrid applications, technologies, and configuration, as well as examples and virtual tours of operational microgrids, and detailed background information into the state of microgrid development.

This is a non-certification course.
