Evaluating the Capabilities of Behind-the-Meter Solar+Storage for Providing Backup Power during Long-Duration Power Interruptions
October 20, 2022 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM ET
Customer-sited solar+storage can help homes and businesses maintain essential activities during grid outages. A new report by Berkeley Lab estimates the performance of commercially available solar+storage systems in providing behind-the-meter critical-load or whole-building backup power during long-duration outages. Researchers modeled scenarios across a wide range of geographies, building types, and power interruption conditions. The study also considers a set of 10 historical long-duration power outage events and evaluates how solar+storage could have performed in providing backup power during those specific events. In this webinar, hosted by Clean Energy Group, report co-authors Galen Barbose and J.P. Carvallo presented the findings.
