Self-generating microgrids are ideal for isolated or rural communities where access to electricity may be limited or infeasible to connect to the grid. The primary driver for microgrids is their ability to deliver reliable, clean power to critical facilities during an extended period by islanding or the ability to operate independently of the utility grid. A microgrid can better manage local power generation by providing optimal control, dynamic stability, and balance demand and generation on a small but critical scale.
Microgrid projects are integral to initiatives that aim to strengthen the economy, save lives during natural disasters, and make our energy supply more sustainable and our electrical power more secure. Microgrids increasingly support more reliable, efficient, and safe power for critical infrastructure in military, utility, healthcare, government, university, residential, and other applications.
