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.

‘Advanced Microgrids’ Provide Advanced Solutions

Advanced microgrids utilities

While microgrids are often viewed as a backup power source or a boutique renewable energy project, they can go beyond both of these simplified definitions. Advanced microgrids use multiple distributed energy resources (DERs), along with a PV charging system battery energy storage (PV/BESS) and other components to benefit both consumers and utilities. Key among those […]

How Utilities Can Be Microgrid Leaders

Distributed Energy Resource utility microgrids

Microgrids are growing more flexible and scalable as digital control platforms become more sophisticated. The advancing technologies make it easier for utilities to use microgrids to integrate more diverse distributed energy resources (DER) into their grid networks. Microgrids also work well with distributed energy resources management systems (DERMS). DERMS typically focus on front of the […]

Opportunities for Public Infrastructure Microgrids: Protecting our Critical Facilities

critical infrastructure microgrids

Local governments, military officials, university heads, utilities, water and waste facilities, as well as executives overseeing hospitals, transit, airports, and port authorities are exploring the feasibility of microgrids for their operations and seeking relevant examples to emulate. Download the guide developed by Rima Oueid, a senior adviser at the U.S. Department of Energy, focused on bringing the resilience, economic, and/or environmental benefits of a microgrid to water, health, transportation, education, and other critical public infrastructure.

Dawn of the Utility Microgrid: The Path to a Profitable Future

utility microgrids

So how can utilities continue to fulfill their service reliability obligations of today, while also integrating the distributed energy and up-and-coming technologies of tomorrow? Download the new white paper from Siemens and learn more about how today’s utilities are beginning to prepare by entering discussions around grid modernization, DER compensation, and business model transformation, by sharply enhancing core utility priorities, such as reliability, resiliency, and efficiency.

Navigating Local Utility Requirements for Microgrids: Lessons from New York

Microgrid Utility Requirements

Microgrids represent a relatively new concept that requires adapting existing frameworks. Because of that, projects must involve careful coordination between the developer, utility and the developer’s energy consultant to ensure a successful outcome. Download the new white paper from Velioa that explores how to navigate local utility requirements for microgrids.
