Peter Lilienthal: Support Repair of Hurricane Matthew-damaged Haitian Microgrid

Join Us in Helping Hurrican Matthew-damaged Haitian Microgrid Repair Efforts When Hurricane Matthew came ashore in Haiti, the center of its landfall was Les Anglais, the location of a leading-edge microgrid developed by nonprofit EarthSpark International. Although almost every building in the town was destroyed, the microgrid only needs relatively minor repair to start assisting with the relief effort. You can help, while giving yourself the gift of microgrid networking and education from some […]

Rocky Mountain Institute: Planning Saint Lucia’s Energy Future — A HOMER Pro Case Study

Island MicrogridsPiton mountains in Saint Lucia

HOMER Case Study: Rocky Mountain Institute Saint Lucia, like other island nations in the Caribbean, experiences high and volatile energy prices and has an economy extremely vulnerable to fluctuations in global oil prices. When combined with heavy reliance on fossil fuel imports, the situation presents a barrier to continued socio-economic development. Natural resources offer strong potential for local generation of renewable energy. As the cost of renewable energy technologies declines, the integration of renewable […]
