Microgrids are a technology which is considered to facilitate the modernization of the grid. But the value drivers for microgrids vary by customer, utility and regulator. This panel will look to outline the appropriate regulatory model needed to optimize the value of a microgrid and the multiplicity of angles which must be considered.
Microgrids are being developed as a building block for future smart grid systems. The fast-paced development and evolution of these systems, often create new challenges, particularly with multiple distributed resources. Microgrid technology has the ability to be an integrated solution that meets these challenges. Effective integration, optimisation and energy management schemes, prompts careful selection of the intelligent systems to control and monitor the interaction and development of microgrids.
System Integrator SAGE Group will demonstrate how an optimised integrated solution has provided the benefit of decreasing energy consumption costs, improving system reliability and increasing overall plant revenue by showcasing the Power and Water Corporation’s (NT) - Solar Energy Transformation Program (SETuP) case study along with other current projects demonstrating these benefits.
In this session SAGE Group will share their integration expertise to optimise microgrid control solutions with an emphasis on:
