Smart Energy Solution for Communities is based upon a Smart Microgrid
Model that extends the Residential Hybrid System as clusters within
communties. These clusters provide independent generation points that
are connected in a network to distribute clean energy within a
Community Microgrid (Wind+Solar+Storage) uses free energy from the Sun
and the Wind to provide primary power throughout the community over a
shared network of low-voltage distribution. Each distribution point can
provide power for a cluster of homes or a neighborhood, and is
connected to shared storage that can be used wherever it's needed
within the community.
Microgrids can become a valuable asset for communties and provide clean
electricity that supports local economic growth and development.
Microgrids can include wireless metering of energy use for local
billing as part of a Community Energy Cooperative, in which residents
both produce and consume energy services together.
can start with a small system (30kW to 100kW) and measure how much
energy they generate and use during each daily cycle. Adding more
capacity is simple and easy, and allows communities to grow their
Microgrid at the rate of community support and participation. In the
future, these Microgrids can then connect to the National Grid and
become part of a larger Smart Grid that balances centralised and
decentralised energy resources.
