Linking Clean Energy and Clean Mobility via Resilient Microgrids

resilient microgrids

Resilient microgrids and energy as a service (EaaS) business models can help to support grid assets by linking renewables, EVs, and advanced software systems to provide real time optimization of diverse energy sources. A new white paper from Schneider Electric explores the link between clean energy and clean mobility, and the role resilient microgrids can play.

The Opportunity for Propane in Microgrid Backup Generators

In their new report, the Propane Education and Research Council explain the opportunities for propane in microgrids. Propane is a low carbon fuel source that produces less soot than diesel and can help achieve emissions goals without any additional costs to the customer.

Engine-driven Generators and their Criticality in Microgrids

engine-driven generators

The purpose of the microgrid solution is to provide cleaner, more efficient, and locally-created power when compared to utility-scale distributed power typically based on coal or nuclear. The benefits have been well documented in industry. This new report from Generac contends fossil-fueled, reciprocating  engine-driven generators will continue to be the solution for the foreseeable future and enable ultimate application flexibility to have microgrid operations available whenever they are needed.
