Smart Micro-Grids Create new Deployable Energy Ecosystem
This briefing will explain why deployed camps present unique capabilities for energy efficiency, as a result of holistic electric system architecture. Most Electric Systems (generation-distribution-consumption) present limited capabilities for end-to-end control, since the many different stakeholders have to put a regulatory framework on debate about the share of burden imposed by the required changes in installations, changes that in turn are subject to a separate discussion among different technologies. Things are simpler with electric infrastructure in deployed camps, where its stakeholders (rarely more than one) need rather a decision than a framework agreement. Industry accepts the challenge to provide decision assistance through proven solutions to customers having this flexibility. The proposed solutions exploit the capabilities of smart Micro-Grids integrating multi-sources power generation, distribution and consumption under common management that creates an Energy Ecosystem offering exceptional configuration flexibility, scalability and mobility with high proven efficiency, performance and significantly low Life-Cycle-Cost.
