Community Microgrids with Energy Storage: Cost Effective and Clean

By Jacqueline DeRosa, Vice President of Energy Storage at Ameresco,
Microgrid Knowledge

The growth of distributed resources is forcing utilities and grid
operators to transition from standard operations to more
decentralized power systems.  Already, local and clean distributed
resources can directly provide a local community’s energy needs.
Distributed renewable energy paired with energy storage is not just
technically feasible, but also cost-effective for many applications
today. New predictive analytics can optimize the use of solar,
advanced energy storage, energy efficiency, and other resources to
allow communities to procure renewable, low-cost energy and
maintain reliability. Continue reading here.
