Microgrids & Virtual Power Plants
Micro-grids and VPPs benefit considerably from the ability to level the load by alternately storing and generating energy as needed. Diesel generators no longer need to power up and down to regulate load, conserving both fuel and wear and tear. And every Watt of power generated whenever the sun shines and the wind blows can be put to use independently of the current demand.
In an independent micro-grid or VPP configuration, intelligent energy storage makes optimal use of all sources of generation. Intermittent solar, wind or fuel cells can become the primary sources of power, with diesel generators being used only when necessary. The result is an energy ecosystem that is more dependable, more stable and more affordable.
DE provides a complete turnkey solution (HW, SW and services) that assures clear accountability by tying together the upfront modeling, design and simulation, with the installation and operational monitoring, control, and financial optimization required to deploy storage + DER solutions at speed and scale for both both grid-tied and independent micro-grids and virtual power plants (VPPs).
