The University of Texas (UT) at Austin claims to have the largest microgrid in the world, with a peak load of 62 MW of capacity, serving 150 buildings. The combined heat and power (CHP) plant that serves as the anchor is rated at 135 MW. Leave it to Texas to make such a claim. It’s not really accurate, but more importantly, it doesn’t really matter. Bigger is not necessarily better when it comes to microgrids.
