Power backup systems may be in peril

It appears that it may be time for backup power generation systems large and small to opt for technology that is capable of manual control as well as computer control. In many businesses, risks and costs are of paramount concern. At a hospital for example, loss of electricity can lead to loss of life. So for hospitals, reliable electricity has a very high value. That makes hospitals candidates for the installation of clean energy microgrids. That was brought home in 2013 after the terrorist attack at the Boston Marathon. Area hospitals were pushed to their limits, and that changed the perspective of many administrators. One area hospital was contemplating the installation of a CHP plant as part of a new facility. Typically, the decision to move forward with such a project would be heavily weighted on the economic benefit. But after the attack, this particular hospital "saw things in a whole different light," said Michael Bakas, senior vice president at Ameresco. Economics were no longer the primary driving force. Instead, the first concern was the ability to act as a last line of defense for the city in a crisis. The hospital could not lose its power; it had to be able to "island" or operate independently from the surrounding grid should disaster strike. Unfortunately, that is a lesson that has been driven home several times in recent years—whether it is the Boston terrorist attack, the record flooding in Houston from Hurricane Harvey, the devastation in Florida from Hurricane Irma, the destruction of Puerto Rico's grid from Hurricane Maria, or the near shut-down of New York City from Hurricane Sandy. Hospital administrators have had ample chance to gain firsthand experience of the importance of uninterrupted electrical service.   The above is the opinion of Les Blevins, President of Advanced Alternative Energy in Lawrence Kansas
