Microgrids and solar reduce risk of power outages

Published December 7, 2021


Tech Xplore posted an article on microgrids and solar power reducing the risk of power outages. It cites a UB study led by Sayanti Mukherjee, assistant professor in the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering and quotes Prasangsha Ganguly, Mukherjee's  PhD student.

Ganguly helped develop a vulnerability map that quantifies and visualizes the wildfire-induced risk for specific communities in a geographic region. “These maps can help federal and state governments make risk-informed decisions related to resource allocations and planning for wildfire risk mitigation,” says Ganguly.
