Microgrid Design and Operation is a practical guide full of deep expertise to help facilitate the design, implementation, and effective management of microgrids. As a member of the International Sustainable Campus Network (ISCN), The University of Genoa shares their real-world experiences from implementing the first low voltage Smart & Sustainable Microgrid in Italy. We recommend this resource to those seeking practical examples to successfully adopt microgrid technology and advance sustainability performance on campus.
The importance of fostering the technological evolution focused on renewable energy sources towards the sustainability is of crucial interest for human beings. The role of universities in this process is essential. Successful planning of microgrid at university campus, which is main goal of the book by professor Federico Delfino and his scientific team, should considerably influence community engagement in making decisions on university-sponsored sustainable energy projects. The experience gained by professor Federico Delfino and his team proved that regional initiatives and good practices could boost national and international initiatives and enforce synergic effects focused on clean energy production and energy savings. The Kielce University of Technology is an example of how good practices developed by Italian scientific team could find followers in other countries acting towards sustainable energy system at university campus. I truly believe that increasing network of partnership universities that allow sharing knowledge and good practices, as described in the book, contributes to raising awareness in society of sustainable development prompting increased demand for clean energy production and energy savings.
