A microgrid is a self-sustained system, consisting of interconnected distributed energy resources and loads under a common control scheme that can operate in an independent mode during grid failures. Energy resources may be renewables like solar and wind, diesel generators, gas turbines, battery storage, electric vehicles and/or demand/response. Microgrids may serve applications ranging from industrial and commercial, campus/institutional, communities to military installations, in an autonomous or grid-connected manner.


Autonomous: Off-grid systems where generated power is consumed to meet the needs of the local demand. Partly autonomous systems are also covered.


Grid Connected: Generate and distribute power within the local grid and import/export power from a utility source

It consists of the central and peripheral Microgrid controllers, data loggers, required communication equipment, and measuring instruments as well as a SCADA/EMS server for proper system management.

Off-grid benefits
  • Uninterrupted Availability of Energy
  • Lower Energy Costs and Fuel use
  • Continuous Power Quality
  • Maximize Renewables generation using Energy storage
  • Optimized Gensets Control
  • Maximize Batteries Lifetime
  • Optimized Gas turbines integration
  • Load management and shedding


Meet the energy demand autonomously or continue operating when the external grid fails
Grid-Connected benefits
  • Revenue stacking with any energy market service
  • Backup power in case of emergencies
  • Energy Time Shifting with Batteries
  • Peak Load Shaving to avoid excess load charges
  • Reduce Energy costs, leveraging any non-flat pricing scheme
  • Maximize Revenues via energy arbitrage
  • Facilitate Energy trading via Dynamic or Scheduled control
  • Demand/Response services
