Aemetis Integrated Microgrid Solution (AIMS) Project
The project will design, install, and operate an emerging microgrid system that reduces energy consumption, operating costs, and GHG emissions at the Recipient's biofuels and animal food production facility. Specifically, solar photovoltaics, a battery energy storage system, and a microgrid controller will be installed. In doing so, this project will demonstrate the potential to reduce the financial risk associated with power outages while also reducing GHG emissions at food processing facilities.
The project is expected to reduce GHG emissions by approximately 6,800 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent per year and nitrogen oxide emissions by approximately 9 tons per year.
