A new white paper from Eaton explores how microgrid evolution is fueling smarter energy management.
Recently, with increased capacity of distributed energy resources – think solar, wind, combined heat and power (CHP), energy storage, and more — Eaton points out businesses, institutions and individuals are jumping on the chance to optimize energy to support resiliency. Costs for energy resources such as solar PV are dropping, which also makes this type of energy more accessible.
With these trends and more, microgrids are also becoming an increasingly popular option to avoid power outages, as well as manage a variety of distributed energy resources and costs.
