Microgrid Energy

In 2011 the city of Hartford, CT lost all power due to a series of monumental storms, so the city installed a fuel cell “microgrid” to provide back-up power during blackouts.  Understand how this technology works and why it is becoming an energy solution to keep the power on during outages.

Renewable Energy

Wind and solar are becoming essential energy sources, but how do they really work? Go inside the inner-workings of a Missouri wind farm to understand how gigantic turbines generate vast amounts of renewable energy for communities!
