Microgrid

You are offgrid, located in a remote area such as a desert or an island, and relying essentially on thermal power plants to produce your electricity ?

EDF Renewables delivers Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) to reduce your fuel consumption / CO2 emissions, and generate immediate cost savings. In most cases, EDF Renewables builds, owns and operates solar power plant equipped with battery system to offset diesel generators usage.

What is a microgrid ?

 

A microgrid is an independent electricity micro-network, with or without a connection to the primary network. Its capacity can range from a few kW to several tens of MW. There is nothing new about microgrids: islands, field dispensaries, residential districts and isolated production sites have always had to generate their own electricity, usually from fossil fuels. Today’s renewable energies offer a wonderful opportunity to make these installations cheaper and more environmentally friendly.

 

Combining solar and/or wind, with storage to reach further savings, enables to offset thermal production thus reducing costs and C02 emissions.
