What is a renewable microgrid
A renewable microgrid is a one or more type of renewable onsite generation. This can be either on-grid or off-grid. This can also be known as distributed renewable generation.
The types of distributed renewable generation include some of the following:
- Solar - rooftop, carport / canopy solar, field scale solar
- Generator using renewable waste bioliquid such as used cooking oil
The EMS (Energy Management System) will provide historic data and forecasts as to the generation, loads, and a management tool with which to manage the microgrid.
The larger the microgrid with multiple source of generation, the greater the potential stability and decrease in the reliance on the grid.
