Join Penn State at The Navy Yard for a half day workshop to learn the purpose, advantages, and key components of microgrids. Using Penn State’s Building 7R as a case study, participants will visit the building-scale microgrid which is on-site.

The workshop is led by Parhum Delgoshaei, assistant teaching professor of systems engineering at Penn State Great Valley. An expert in smart energy systems, Delgoshaei specializes in optimization and control of hybrid microgrids that utilize renewable and combined heat and power sources.
