University of California San Diego Microgrid

This information provided by Smart Cities Council Global.

The University of California at San Diego (UCSD) has a long history of self-reliance when it comes to energy. Today, the campus produces 92% of its own energy. It’s striving to go further with a combination of new clean energy resources, additional on-site generation and storage, and innovative demand-reduction strategies. The cornerstone of the effort is the Council Associate Partner OSIsoft's PI System, which gathers data from hundreds of sensors, serves as a universal translator that synchronizes and coordinates operations of the campus’ complex energy assets, and supports UCSD’s efforts to create a sustainable environment for learning and innovation.
