Boston Microgrid Development

Elisa Wood, chief editor of, reports on Boston’s call for microgrid development as a climate strategy.

A new climate strategy report by the city of Boston calls for microgrid development in several neighborhoods to avert power outages and promote low-carbon energy.

A product of the city’s year-long climate study, the report gauges the impact of climate change and proposes ways to increase resiliency.

“The city should pursue community energy solutions, such as district energy systems or microgrids, that increase energy reliability and decrease greenhouse gas emissions,” said the final report of Climate Ready Boston.
