A micro-grid helps to balance local supply and demand by linking consumers with sources of power and energy storage, through the use of smart communication and control systems. This gives clients the ability to link demand with generation and bypass utility companies where the grid is a problem.
Micro-grids are attractive because they bypass the high costs and long consenting times involved with building electricity grid infrastructure, such as pylons, to increase the capacity of the national grid. Nova has developed a successful micro-grid system on the shores of Bluemull Sound in Shetland - you can learn more here. With real-world experience of micro-grids, our team can provide solutions in energy systems including design, development, and installation of micro-grids.
