Electric boats may enable floating microgrids that could serve islands that have historically been powered by fossil fuels, according to a report from researchers at the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia. “Powering small islands with reliable, affordable and green electricity is a big challenge due to their dispersed … [Read more...]

IEEE Approves Second of Two Industry Standards for Microgrid Controllers

microgrid controllers

The Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers recently approved the second of two companion standards for advanced microgrid controllers. IEEE 2030.8 complements the previously approved IEEE 2030.7 by setting out an industry standard that specifies exactly what's needed to test microgrid controllers. More specifically, the suite of … [Read more...]
