Learn how microgrids bolster energy resilience when the Hailey Public Library features Idaho Nuclear Laboratory researcher Dr. Manish Mohanpurkar on Thursday.

Mohanpurkar will discuss smart power virtually at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, June 11.

Microgrids combine local electricity generation, like solar, wind or water and energy storage systems to run in parallel with the main grid. They can funnel electricity to and from the main grid. Or, if the main grid goes down, they separate like an island to continue service.

They can contribute to the energy diversity of remote communities and critical facilities, such as hospitals.

Kristin Fletcher said the library is delighted to host the talk featuring Idaho National Laboratory’s cutting-edge research: “Our community is deeply committed to energy diversity and resilience and microgrids may be a useful addition.”

Mohanpurkar’s work includes power systems analysis, real-time digital simulation, power markets, assimilation of renewable energy and energy resource planning studies.

He has a doctorate in electrical engineering from Colorado State University, a master’s in electrical engineering from Oklahoma State University, and a bachelor’s in electric engineering from Government College of Engineering, in Aurangabad, Maharashtra, Indian.

He has written more than 45 technical articles in leading scientific publications.
