A Greener Way to Store More Energy

Microgrids are transforming the way we produce and distribute electricity, enabling communities to generate their own power independently of the main grid. These small-scale systems are well suited for renewables, but daily fluctuations in wind and solar energy make it difficult to guarantee a reliable supply. And although storing excess electricity in batteries can buffer supply and demand, this approach requires high capital cost investment.
