EcoStruxure™ Microgrids: Reliable energy and power distribution | Easily optimize the best times to consume, produce, store, and sell energy
Who can benefit from a microgrid?
Early adopters of microgrids included hospitals, data centers, and other facilities where reliability and resiliency are essential. Today, organizations of all kinds are turning to microgrids and distributed energy resources for financial and sustainability benefits.
We’ve worked with a diverse set of customers: from municipal governments and military bases to nature preserves and vertical farms. Any organization seeking to gain control over energy costs, advance sustainability, and increase resiliency can benefit from a microgrid.
Additionally, as infrastructure, industry, and buildings continue to become more electrified, microgrids can help generate power for additional loads. For example, increased power needs for EV chargers or electrification of heating.
