Reciprocating Engine Generators and Microgrids: The Last Defense Against a Power Outage

reciprocating engines and microgrids

Reciprocating engine generators are becoming increasingly important to help solve three contemporary energy problems. The first problem occurs in developed areas like North America, where electric reliability is crucial as the economy grows ever more Internet-based. The second problem can be found in remote regions of the world, where no … [Read more...]

Islands and Microgrids

Islands and microgrids

The traditional electrical grids deployed on remote islands and microgrids includes a single centralized diesel generating station with distribution lines connected to the rest of the island. This configuration is proving to be expensive and unsustainable. Progressive utilities across the World (with support from organizations such as the World … [Read more...]

Island Microgrids Power the Pacific
