This talk will review the development of a renewable energy microgrid at the NASA Ames Research Center that includes generation (solar and wind) and storage in an electrical vehicle. It is based on student projects initiated in the LoCalRE Renewable Energy in Practice Summer School held on alternate years in Lolland, Denmark and California, USA from 2008-2012. A tracking photovoltaic panel that is a part of the microgrid has been put on-line for a remotely accessible laboratory module for courses in renewable energy.
