The University of Minnesota has built a microgrid at its Morris campus that is a microcosm of what eventually could be the norm everywhere. The campus, highly reliant on locally generated renewable energy, is almost self-sustaining in terms of energy and net-zero in terms of carbon. The next step will be to reduce energy use and improve efficiency, with the introduction of time-of-day pricing schemes.
