Recorded: 21 Apr 2016

Webinar Overview

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.
