Maximize renewable generation.
Uninterrupted emergency backup.
Microgrids are becoming more important, as technologies such as energy storage become more viable, and as a way to reduce carbon emissions. These mini grid-tied and off-grid power plants offer new protections against fluctuations in power delivery and power outages. Remote villages, mining sites, critical facilities such as hospitals and military bases, and even small cities are adopting microgrids. The energy storage portion becomes a vital component, enabling instant, dispatchable power when wanted, or when needed in emergency situations.
