A microgrid is an engineered power delivery configuration consisting of on-site electric components either custom or modular in a connected and controlled environment to meet a very specific energy requirement while also focusing on the environment and sustainability while improving (or increasing) increasing resilience. Microgrids can operate connected to the utility or independently. Maybe say – “Microgrids that incorporate renewable power generation and energy storage can operate in “island mode” a self-contained electrical network.
Optimizing operations and designing a microgrid that is cost-effective can provide a business the energy independence, resilience and operational flexibility to survive over the decades of growth and economic change that a commercial or industrial facility needs to succeed.
