Can micro-grids plug this gap?

Can micro-grids plug this gap? Microgrids are local, independent energy grids serving a discrete geographic area. Within the microgrid is an energy generation component. We use clean energy, and this guides us to solar panels, wind turbines, generators (in hybrid deployments) for energy generation. There is also a storage component using batteries. The microgrid has a distribution network interconnecting to nearby buildings – homes, businesses, utilities, providing power for appliances, lighting, heating/cooling, etc. as required. Microgrids are managed by sophisticated software and control systems to ensure the continuous balance between electricity generation and demand.

Policy and Regulation

World over, countries have set targets for the increase of renewable energy and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. The attempt to curb climate change is a strong marker for renewables

Funding Flow

There is a boon in funding for renewable energy projects, specifically to propagate mini-grids, especially for off-grid communities. New entrants from outside the traditional energy industry are coming into the market. New commercial models are emerging as well, including peer to peer energy transactions.

Backup Action

When industrial and manufacturing companies lose power, it can cost millions of dollars in down-time, waste and equipment damage. Implementing distributed energy resources enable industrial customers to continue operating even if the main grid is down.

Security of supply

As traditional fossil fueled generation plants are reaching end of life, and with the increased realization that oil is a finite resource, countries need to find new sources to meet growing energy demands. Implementing and managing multiple energy sources, including renewable generation, helps to maintain energy security. Furthermore, local management of Distributed Energy Resources reduces supply chain risks associated with traditional energy sources
