Distributed Energy Resources for Cost Savings and Resilience

Unlike conventional back-up diesel generators, distributed energy resources (DER) like combined heat and power (CHP) and battery storage coupled with renewable energy technologies can provide both cost savings and resilience benefits. In this session, Better Building partners shared their solutions for leveraging DER to reduce costs and keep operating when the grid goes down.
