Energy storage is the key to realizing the full potential of microgrids and eliminating dependence on fossil fuel systems for power supply and power quality. It strengthens your grid by providing critical system services to buffer the impact of fluctuating power demand and supply. This reduces the run-time on aging and expensive back-up diesel generation.

Microgrids are localized grids that can disconnect from the traditional grid to operate independently. Through the energy storage system, they are able to operate while the main grid is down, and strengthen grid resilience and help mitigate grid disturbances as well as function as a grid resource for faster system response and recovery.

Microgrids support a flexible electric grid by enabling the integration of distributed renewable energy resources such as solar. In addition, the use of local energy to serve local loads helps reduce energy losses in transmission and distribution, further increasing the efficiency of the electric delivery system.

Why are microgrids so important?

Provide efficient, low-cost, clean energy

Improve the reliability and resilience of the regional electric grid

Lower energy costs for consumers and businesses

Provide local management of variable renewable generation, particularly on-site solar
