With increased pressure on power grids, microgrids are taking center stage. After all, utilities are realizing they can’t guarantee energy supply to customers.
Plus, we’re seeing far more demand for microgrids thanks to power outages with wildfires, storms, earthquakes, and other disasters, like what we’re seeing in California with 130 degree heat, and blackouts.
In addition, according to Google, “Demand is high for microgrid projects to serve homes, businesses, and industry in both rural and urban California, the company said. ‘The commercialization mandate is, in effect, a directive to catch up with an unmet need for microgrids.’”
Even nations around the world are increasing their deployment of microgrid technology. In the U.S., for example, lawmakers are starting to incorporate microgrids into their climate strategies.
