Tier 4 Final Diesel Engines: Debunking Myths and Setting the Record Straight

The Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) most recent regulations on clean air standards, known at Tier 4 Final, require significant reductions in nitrogen oxides (NOx) and particulate matter over previous tiers, which impacts microgrid operators and others that use diesel generators for standby power. A new white paper from Volvo Penta debunks … [Read more...]

A Powerful Combination: Blending the Benefits of Renewables and Diesel in Microgrids

Darren Tasker, vice president of industrial sales at Volvo Penta of the Americas, discusses the benefits of blending renewable energy sources with diesel generators in a microgrid. Governments across the globe are calling for an accelerated transition to decarbonization and increased integration of renewables into energy systems. While much … [Read more...]

Remote Generation Optimization with Microgrids Increases Efficiency

A new white paper from Go Electric explores how microgrids can help optimize remote generation for both efficiency and fuel savings. The paper presents a case study of the Go Electric GEM/ISM microgrid system. The author models a 1-MW remote site using three 350-MW generators, both with and without the GEM/ISM microgrid system. The author's goal is … [Read more...]
