Microgrids And Demand Management

Wednesday, Aug 29, 2012

Demand response innovations are enabling large scale consumers to provide fast responding load curtailments to relieve congestion, reliability risk and energy price volatility. In exchange for emission-free, virtual power, regional grid operators and utilities are providing increasingly attractive financial incentives. With new revenues and savings, financial hurdles for widespread distributed storage and generation are breaking down, offering a growing opportunity for the development of localized microgrids that can reduce outage risks in critical congestions, such as New York City.

Full Spectrum Demand Response, or virtual generation, and the development of microgrids hold the potential to be two of the most impactful developments in addressing mounting challenges to maintain energy surety and fulfill on the smart grid promise.

Microgrids are self-sustaining power networks within the larger grid system that provide a higher level of local reliability than what is provided by the entire power system as a whole. By empowering consumers and gathering real-time data from different parts of the grid, microgrids and Full Spectrum Demand Response allow for more informed distribution of power through­out the entire grid and more efficient use of peak power throughout the day.
