Our three-part series of Rolls-Royce white papers continues with a look at microgrid and distributed generation projects incorporating battery storage with multiple energy sources, including renewables.
What will your power look like ten years from now? Chances are, you’ve been thinking about incorporating renewable energy sources such as solar and wind power. Ideally, those sustainable power solutions will not only reduce your carbon footprint but will also put you more in control of your power management.
The rising demand for more reliable energy solutions doesn’t have to be at odds with the increasing need for a cleaner world.
Autonomous electricity networks, or microgrids, combine cogeneration plants, diesel- and gas-powered gensets and renewable sources with batteries and a control system that links up all the elements in an intelligent energy management system that can maintain energy availability. Rolls-Royce is now adding turnkey microgrids from mtu to its current portfolio.
