Microgrids are self-sufficient stand-alone grids that can help relieve the burden on the large distribution grid. This creates a kind of small grid that supplies connected consumers with electricity from their own generation facilities such as generators, photovoltaic systems, wind turbines and/or biogas plants, and can also stabilize itself through the use of batteries. Such stand-alone grids are very useful for remote locations or plants whose connection to the public grid would require a lot of effort due to the distance - also as a temporary solution or bridging. In addition, there is a growing demand and clear economic advantages for specific grid types that are different from the public grid, e.g., DC grids at ports or mines.
With decarbonization, decentralization, and electrification changing the way energy supply is managed, microgrids will play an increasing role in the new energy landscape.
A fully optimized microgrid ensures power reliability from your onsite generation assets, lowers your energy costs, and reduces your carbon footprint.
