Bosch DC Microgrid at California Honda Facility

Building · Construction
Illustrating the viability and benefits of a commercial-scale DC building grid compared with conventional AC-based grid connected solar photovoltaic (PV) systems or microgrids

“We are confident the Bosch DC microgrid system will contribute to California’s carbon reduction and energy efficiency goals by increasing the reliability and utilization of distributed renewable energy and improving the energy efficiency of state-of-the-art technologies – such as LED lighting paired with advanced lighting controls, motors with variable frequency drives and energy storage systems – by operating them on DC power,” said Oliver Steinig, vice president of business development for Robert Bosch LLC. “This will reduce installation costs and lower operating costs, while increasing reliability and quality of the power provided to building loads.”
