Micro-Grid are hybrid system configurations that integrate multiple energy sources and battery-based stabilization technology within a smart control system. They facilitate the seamless transition between grid-connected and island modes without any disruption to the connected loads. These systems are able to operate as its own ‘power island’, supplying reliable power 24/7 and ensuring that business continues as normal despite any planned or unplanned disturbances or outages of the main power grid. While continuity of supply is the critical factor, the WATT system also optimizes the site’s use of solar power to reduce its reliance on increasingly expensive and polluting diesel fuel.
Micro grids are increasingly being deployed to ensure local continuity of power supply, reduce reliance on fossil fuels and defer large-scale grid investments in areas that have a weak connection to the main electricity grid. Such grid-connected microgrids are growing in popularity to help address rising power demands, take advantage of the falling cost of renewable sources – in particular solar photovoltaic (PV)
technology and batteries – and improve supply resilience and autonomy especially for critical applications.
WATT patent pending technology offers fully integrated, reliable and safe storage solutions for a wide range of applications. Examples of where WATT’s systems could be used include but are not limited to:
- Zero Export Scenarios
- Stable Power Supply
- Critical Applications
