Attendees at Enova Energy’s promotion event to local small businesses were presented with the potential of a Microgrid for their neighbourhood.
Josh Harvey, Essential Energy’s Head of Innovation and Market Analytics presented on how a Microgrid would be beneficial to this business community.
Major benefits of a microgrid include reliability during major power outages via the central ‘grid’ but also may lower costs. Increasing the amount of onsite energy generation in conjunction with appropriate physical measures is a risk mitigation strategy for security of supply.
Through optimisation of community onsite generation and reduction in network costs, the microgrid has the potential to reduce prices for participants as well as improve reliability and resilience.
