a high-reliability microgrid for an uncertain future...

In February 2021, frigid temperatures brought chaos to roads and wreaked havoc on Texas energy infrastructure. The winter storm left millions of residents without power and thousands of businesses unable to operate. But with sustainability goals paramount to the organization, and having installed a high-reliability microgrid for an uncertain future to avoid unanticipated power disruptions, the important work that was being conducted at AmerisourceBergen was able to continue. The wholesale pharmaceutical company, which distributes pharmaceutical products to tens of thousands of sites of care nationwide each day, kept operations humming with a microgrid at the company’s Carrollton, Texas, facility.

Initially, during the February storm, the grid operators called on generation assets enrolled in DR programs such as the AmerisourceBergen microgrid to run to remove load from grid. But as the storm raged on, frequency began to dip and grid operators responded by initiating rolling outages. At that point, the AmerisourceBergen system transitioned from running in parallel operation to island mode, opting to rely on its Volvo Penta 16-liter Tier 4 Final powered 2,500-kW PowerBlock® PowerSecure high-reliability microgrid for power.
