Abstract

Smart microgrids represent a unique combination of power generation and distribution on a small scale, that, prior to the I.T. revolution has never been seen before. In the US healthcare cost is increasing, but with micro smart grid technology and already well proven co-generation technology energy and fuel usage can be reduced. These systems can lower the hospital’s running cost and allow a hospital to more easily implement renewable technology while still ensuring power reliability.
