Security of energy supply and energy efficiency are challenges for many university campuses. Campus microgrid with distributed energy resources is considered as a solution for solving these challenges. However, the microgrid adoption for university campuses has to consider various factors due to the cost of DER installation and operation, campus activities and energy regulation etc. This paper investigates the possibility and feasibility of microgrid adoption for a university in Denmark, by analyzing the electricity and heat consumption patterns, the capacity of existing installed DERs, and the benefits and barriers for future installation of possible DER technologies. Based on this analysis the paper proposes three energy scenarios with different potential DER solutions, and provides simulations for investigating the energy balance and economic feasibility of each scenario.
