      Microgrids' Challenges

      DERs are reshaping the energy landscape. Cheaper and greener, they yield massive productivity changes. Intermittent and decentralized, they imply innovative power systems designs to optimize, ensure system stability, and to finance assets implementation. They call for behavior changes, new, smart technologies, and new business models.

      Microgrid Management system Our microgrid management system relies on two main functions:

      • The Microgrid Control (Microgrid Operation) is an on-premise solution that ensures grid stability and energy reliability in several scenarios (islanded partially or not, grid-tied, etc.).
      • The Microgrid EMS (EcoStruxure™ Microgrid Advisor) is a cloud-based solution that leverages powerful analytics in order to optimize microgrid performance, in terms of sustainability, energy costs and productivity.
      Optimize the use of energy resources with our Microgrid Energy Management System (EMS) EcoStruxure™ Microgrid Advisor predicts energy consumption and production of DERs, automatically adapting your energy mix to environmental criteria such as availability, price and weather conditions.
