Microgrid: Creating Resiliency for Cities and Establishing a New Energy Marketplace

Maggie Clout, Business Development Manager at Siemens. She is the lead business developer for 17 project wins of New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) NYPrize Community Microgrid Program.

It opens up a door for real estate owners to generate income from unused electricity or heat generation in their portfolios.
