Robust district energy/microgrids provide enhanced reliability from severe weather

Fairfield was acknowledged in this story about smart energy: “During Super Storm Sandy, when electricity service was interrupted to over 8 million people across the tri-state region and beyond, the district energy microgrids at Princeton University, Cornell University, Fairfield University and Co-Op City in the Bronx maintained energy services to provide heat and lights for their occupants,” says Rob Thornton, President & CEO of International District Energy Association. “Our campuses have been the proving grounds for microgrids and representatives from these systems will be sharing best practice guidance at the upcoming Global District Energy Climate Summit in New York City Sept 23-24, 2013.”
