On March 8, 2018, New York Advanced Energy held its stakeholder breakfast at the offices of Duane Morris. The event brought AEG’s stakeholder members to discuss the topics of Energy Resiliency and Critical Infrastructure.
This installment of the AEG Podcast features Paul Tyno, strategic energy advisor of Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus (BNMC). He shared his expertise on the energy industry as he laid out the master plan for BNMC partnered with National Grid. With 17,000 people on campus and medical equipment that can have life-threatening implications from energy disruptions, critical energy infrastructure must be prioritized. At medical institutions, power quality and resiliency requirements are much higher. With the development of a microgrid, BNMC became a self-sustaining energy hub, enabling back-up energy supply in the event of a grid outage. Paul noted that a microgrid is not the end point and that energy systems are always evolving, customers will continue to adapt and it is essential to stack projects to the broader systems. Conversations between policy makers, energy providers, and customers is essential.
