Microgrids are self-sufficient energy systems serving a specific building, campus, or district. They use intelligent software controllers to match real-time energy supply and demand. Microgrids can operate in parallel with the local utility but often have the ability to ‘island’ during grid outages.
Local generation ensures microgrids are more efficient than the traditional grid–they don’t suffer transmission and distribution losses
Microgrids provide resilience, allowing infrastructure to operate during grid power outages
When designed properly, microgrids provide better power quality to sensitive loads
Whether it’s for commercial, industrial, or institutional clients, Endurant’s microgrid design approach puts flexibility and future-proofing at the center. We assess critical energy loads, then determine which energy assets combine technical, regulatory, and economic viability.
An Endurant microgrid design is dependent on our clients’ specific needs. A renewables-focused system might include on-site solar PV with batteries. Fuel-sourced generation can ensure full resiliency.
When heat-pump driven thermal generation is added, a ‘total energy’ microgrid can be created. These harness the synergies created when the thermal and electrical systems are optimized under a single controller.
