5 Prospects for Renewable Microgrid Technology Innovation

5 Prospects for Renewable Microgrid Technology Innovation

Current research is providing groundbreaking innovations that could help renewable energy-based microgrids become “the energy supply of the future,” according to a new report from the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA). The innovations outlined by IRENA in its new report span the range of microgrid functionalities, including control/management/measurement systems; planning and design; energy storage; and power conversion. Here are five innovations that IRENA said can support those functionalities. Availability of Load Data Providing accurate load data can help with renewable microgrid design efficiency. The report said that predicting load data for projects is a challenge, especially given the limited amount of publicly available data on load usage. Long-term Supervisory Control As the center of smart grids, information technology will help the microgrid market ...
