The Innovator's Evening Lecture Series is intended to provide networking opportunities and create a forum where interested members of the energy efficiency community can have access to innovators in the industry who are transforming the marketplace. These monthly conversational presentations are intended to discuss "big picture" opportunities for change from the speaker's own viewpoint and encourage an exchange of new ideas.
The presenters will describe the progress and findings of Solar + Storage, and share tools and resources developed under this project. Specifically, they will demonstrate the publicly-available (FREE) solar and storage sizing tool, SolarResilient.org. This first-of-its-kind tool enables building managers, energy managers, architects, sustainability and energy professionals to size their buildings for solar PV and battery storage systems nationwide. This tool estimates the required rating and physical size of grid-connected PV and battery energy storage to provide power for extended periods during a large-scale grid power outage.
