Generating over 90% of the campus’ energy, UC San Diego’s microgrid is considered one of the most advanced in the world. The microgrid consists of a cogeneration plant, a renewable energy fuel cell, solar photovoltaics, battery and thermal energy storage, and several energy demonstration test sites. Also connected to the microgrid is a diverse array of EV chargers, including both Level 2 and DC Fast Chargers, as well as demonstration solar-integrated and vehicle-to-grid systems.

Tour 2 • afternoon walking tour 12:45 pm - 1:30 pm

The UC San Diego campus has a wide array of sustainability features, including the student-led “solar chill” renewable energy project, a solar forest, and a demonstration 2nd life battery energy storage site. In addition to these, during the afternoon tour, the group will visit a campus community garden, an environmentally sustainable open space with various examples of drought-tolerant vegetation, and nearby LEED-certified facilities where innovative green building designs will be highlighted.
