Microgrids are have been making a lot of news lately at community, grid and national levels. This may be because whilst the development and implementation of microgrids may further improve the reliability and resiliency of the grid, they also help communities engage energy in a more efficient manner and keep nations moving towards cleaner energy futures.

This webinar sets the scene by discussing;

- Where are are micro grids making waves and why?
- The DNA of the microgrid and the unique problems they solved
- Examples from the real world and lessons learnt

But it isn't all roses and rainbows as microgrids could potentially disrupt the fabric of the traditional energy eco-system, questioning the value chain and relevance of incumbents by increasing the stake of wider participants (prosumers) and also breaking down barriers of entry to new entrants in the energy game.

Microgrids at Work: Utilising Microgrids to Achieve Successful 21st Century Energy Strategies

Broadcast Date: Wed 11 May 13:00 UTC


This discussion will walk you through the key drivers for why a microgrid, what types of microgrids there are and how a microgrid is developed.


  • Christopher N. Evanich

    Applications Director of Microgrids


We have been seeing a trend of rising energy cost, more frequent and intense storms and natural disasters and stricter carbon emissions. What if you could have a lower total cost of energy and be self-sufficient? Thousands of stakeholders are benefiting today through Microgrids. Microgrids have revolutionized the way power is produced, delivered and consumed.

This discussion will walk you through the key drivers for why a microgrid, what types of microgrids there are and how a microgrid is developed. Examples will include single buildings, campuses and community microgrids including one customer to thousands. The technology part of the discussion will include the integration of alternative energy resources, distribution automation, energy storage, microgrid controller and economic dispatching. Participants will also learn about best practices for deploying a Microgrid.
