Microgrids and Battery Storage

Date: 20 January 2016
Public Utilities Fortnightly

The era of the microgrid and energy storage is here. And it’s become quite popular among the clean energy crowd, forward-thinking utilities and like-minded energy pundits. IEEE Smart Grid Chair Dr. Massoud Amin is definitely in that group and through his article on Public Utilities Fortnightly he communicates all the benefits and policy progress to date. Dr. Amin also provides a nice snapshot of the future of microgrids and energy storage via batteries. As more and more companies step up in this arena and the technology becomes more refined, the overall approach to the smart grid will improve. All in all, this points to better adoption and acceptance.
