Woodstock and Whatever the Future Might Bring

Thursday, Jan 21, 2016

The Woodstock Hydro Story: Microgrids, Rooftop Solar, Household Storage and Whatever the Future Might Bring?

Date:
Thursday, Jan 21, 2016 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM EST

About:
In Ontario, an innovative regional electricity utility envisions a future characterized by microgrids, rooftop solar and household storage options both capable of meeting customer desires for distributed generation and of carrying its consumers through major outages.

But how many customers are prepared to put their own renewable generation into place? And, can they generate enough power to make a go of it when disconnected from the grid? Utility managers also wanted to explore how multiple distributed energy resources work together.

To answer these questions, the utility built a research test site that creates the data needed for thorough analysis of these issues. The test site also serves as a venue for public education on what it takes to go off-grid with household generation and storage.

With a goal of better understanding how customers use energy and what can be expected from household solar generation, Woodstock Hydro's Whites Lane MicroGRID initiative is testing new technologies to demonstrate a small distribution system that will eventually have the ability to couple or de-couple with the greater distribution grid.

This webinar will present the results of this highly innovative and interesting project, which encompasses capturing and analyzing data from photovoltaic solar generation, lead-acid energy storage, inverter equipment, electric chargers and vehicles, as well as smart metering to monitor bi-directional flows of energy. Phase 2 adds in a weather station, a power quality analyzer, SCADA, analytics for smart meter data, additional solar generation, lithium-ion energy storage, customer monitoring equipment and more enhanced peak demand response capabilities.

Learn how the utility is testing new technologies to reduce its dependence on traditional generation while also engaging the community.
