The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Electricity launched the Voices of Experience Initiative to capture the experiences, insights and lessons learned from the utilities at the forefront of implementing emerging technologies. Resilience – the ability to withstand, respond to, and recover rapidly from utility disruptions while sustaining mission-critical operations – is increasingly a focus for utilities, policy makers, regulators, and community leaders. While some utilities own and operate microgrids to help ensure supply to critical customers and areas, customers such as the Department of Defense and corporate data centers also own and operate microgrids to prevent power disruptions and to mitigate the consequences of outages when they do occur.
