COTE AIA|LA Presents:
Why Microgrids in CA Hospitals are Trending Positive

Microgrids are making waves in renewables in a big way! These systems can sustain clean energy, support interconnectivity, and help organizations reach financial and energy goals, but what is their place in the regulated world of the built environment? With code changes looking positive for the future of microgrids in this market, we will share lessons learned from implementing the FIRST Microgrid in a Hospital in California. Plus, we’ll discuss further replicable examples throughout Southern California where Mazzetti has been stretching the limits of this exciting technology. Think of this as a guide to understanding where microgrids are now, where they could go in the future and ways we can all benefit by implementing them in healthcare projects!
