These systems use solar, wind,

sources to generate power for a
business, university or hospital.
Many of these facilities also use

"These organizations benefit
from a cost perspective, but
they also create a more dependable power supply and they have
emergency power during a natural disaster such as a hurricane or
earthquake," Bernier says.
Make no mistake, the desire to embrace renewables is growing-and adoption is spiking. According to the U.S. Department
of Energy, 41 percent of all new energy capacity installed in the
U.S. involved wind power in 2015. If solar is added, the figure
rises to 66 percent. At the same time, the U.S. Energy Information Administration projected in December 2018 that the U.S.
will end 2018 with the lowest coal consumption level since 1979.
It attributed the change to cheap and cleaner-burning forms of
energy, particularly natural gas. It also cited tighter pollution rules
that have led to the shutdown of older and dirtier coal plants.

"There is high demand for development
of economical and reliable energy storage
along with commercial development of
smart grid technology."

have become a common sight on land as well as off the coast
of Northern Europe, they are now spreading to the U.S. In
December for example, three energy companies bid a record
$405 million to secure rights to offshore wind farms near
Massachusetts. Other projects are on the drawing boards. Only
a few years ago there were no offshore wind farms supplying the
U.S. The nation's first offshore wind farm was built in 2015 near
Block Island, Rhode Island, a 30-megawatt facility that Mott
MacDonald aided in engineering. By contrast, the 390,000-acre
Martha's Vineyard farm is expected to produce 4,100 megawatts,
enough to power approximately 1.5 million homes.
"Businesses are adding renewable energy to their operating
models," DeNichilo says. This includes smart microgrids that
