In October, Sandia National Laboratories will present two workshops on energy assurance and advanced microgrid design. The workshops, based on Sandia’s Energy Assurance and Advanced Microgrid Conceptual Design Course, will include background information, technical discussion, and working example problems, including specific examples related to the U.S. Virgin Islands.
There will be two sessions available – one on October 24th at the University of the Virgin Islands-St. Croix and another on October 26th at the University of the Virgin Islands – St. Thomas. The same one-day course will be presented during both sessions. Attendees are requested to RSVP.
