The Arrival of DC Power in Buildings
About this session:
The use of direct current (DC) power in buildings are becoming more prevalent as the industry realizes it is more efficient and reliable than an alternating current (AC) system. Buildings implementing DC energy systems are more self sufficient as the majority of the energy generated onsite is directly consumed by the facility, therefore not solely relying on the utility grid to provide power. Learn how a DC power system can be cost-effectively deployed to provide your building energy needs in normal operation and even during an outage.
1. Understand how DC power already plays an essential and unrecognized part of our everyday lives
2. Learn why and how DC power can be sustainable while reducing costs and increasing electric reliability
3. Learn how DC technologies can be incorporated into buildings and its benefits
4. Understand why a shift to DC power will be essential in the future for mission critical properties
