The market for micro-grids is working to expand at a series of businesses and utilities. They are beginning to install this new technology for its resilience and reliable power supply. Micro-grids have started to see notoriety over the past few years because they offer backup as well as ongoing primary power sources. These systems provide advanced reliability and improvements to energy security and they can be highly sustainable for the average business.
Accessing microgeneration can be beneficial for consumers as well, large-scale companies can cause power generation issues with local grids, having access to these important tools can make sure that businesses can remain more sustainable while also providing a decrease in electricity costs for consumers.
Many governments are working to support the construction effort in these micro-grids, investment tax credits, tax rebates and feed in tariffs are all available to manage the solar power and battery storage solutions for micro-grids.
As new research and development into micro-grids continues we will continue to see this technology adapted into more diverse settings. It works particularly well in remote settings but with greater reliability we may soon see micro-grids fighting their way into hospitals, military bases and more.
The technology is advancing quickly and this means that greater deployment numbers will be seen throughout the year 2020. New applications are being tested with these grids including placement in areas which are particularly prone to wildfires, and agricultural facilities, marine terminals and more. Several state governments are opening up new funds to support projects in government run facilities with these grids as well.
This technology has become a growth industry within the electronics market for businesses that are looking for more sustainable power solutions. If you are in need of more information on micro grids, contact us today to learn more.
