Microgrid – Overview

A microgrid system is a type of discrete energy systems that includes appropriated energy sources, and power loads and provides power to residential, commercial, industrial & government consumers. The main purpose of microgrid is to provide affordable energy for rural and urban areas during emergency. The microgrid can be charged through batteries, distributed generator, and renewable source of energy. The microgrid systems are the compact version of traditional power grid as it provides efficient power and can be integrated with renewable sources of energy such as solar, wind, geothermal, and others. The microgrid even operates independently during the time of the primary grid failure.

The advantages of Microgrid Market system over conventional power grid system includes power quality, dependability and security for end user, improves the coordination of distributed and renewable power sources, limit carbon footprints, and generate clean energy without affecting the environment, reduces the greenhouse gas emission. This is one of the major factors that is driving the microgrid market globally. Similarly, rising awareness among the consumer about the renewable sources of energy is also fuelling the market growth. The increase in the pollution is a major challenge faced by many countries. To reduce these challenges, governments of different nations are taking initiative to generate power through renewable source of energy such as utilization of solar panels to convert solar energy into electricity and reduce the pollution caused by production through conventional technique. This will eventually reduce the pollution to a certain level caused due to traditional power grid. According to Victoria State Government, it will contribute USD 10 million to develop and implement projects utilizing microgrid models, the project will be completed by the year 2021. This will result to provide more reliable source of power. However, high cost for installation of microgrid and economic constraints is projected to hinder the growth of microgrid market.
