Hybrid Microgrid Deployment in the Commercial and Industrial Sector
Enernet Global implements microgrids in the traditional off-grid sectors, such as remote communities and the mining sector. In recent months the deployment of microgrid technology to grid connected clients in the commercial and industrial sectors is becoming more prevalent, as behind the meter solutions are offering cost effective solutions to traditional retailed energy services.
Commercial microgrids also offer enhanced energy services with increased levels of energy security and reliability and the prospect for seamless islanding where grids offer less than acceptable reliability.
Enernet will outline how the economics of solar PV and energy storage, and the integration of these systems into on-site load and demand management is driving a whole new class of renewable microgrids.
