Event Description

The concept of a microgrid is quickly becoming one of the most popular trends in energy distribution, offering resilience and independence that can't be achieved relying on the traditional power grid. Installations such as military bases, hospitals, universities and rural communities are already experiencing the benefits of switching to this method of power supply, and it seems the number of organizations adopting microgrid capabilities is growing steadily. With the added benefits of infrastructure resilience and renewable energy emphases, microgrids seem like a perfect fit for the future of energy distribution.
