1161 - New Technologies for Health Care Power and Emergency Power


Jul 15, 2019 9:45am ‐ Jul 15, 2019 10:45am


Credits: None available.

Description

Technology is advancing faster than our codes. As the cost of distributed energy generation systems, energy storage systems and artificial intelligence continues to fall, new ways of powering electrical systems are starting to disrupt our traditional ways of thinking about energy supplies for critical buildings. These changes have the potential to address some of the resilience and sustainability concerns many health care organizations are trying to address. This session will show examples of two health care microgrid systems, and give a brief overview of the ways the codes are starting to adapt.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define a health care microgrid based on the NFPA 99 new definition.
  • Identify the technologies appropriate for microgrid application.
  • Describe how health care facilities use microgrids to supply electricity to their distribution system.
  • Understand the current state of NFPA codes as they evolve to meet the needs of the future.
