Distributed energy resources, or DERs, can do a lot to meet your business’ unique energy needs efficiently, reliably, and with the level of resilience you need. Integrated DER systems like microgrids are designed to complement, supplement, or even replace traditional electrical systems and grid reliance. They’re small-scale energy distribution and storage technologies that localize power […]
Whether you are prepared for them or not, power interruptions can cost your business more than you think. Not all power disruption costs are evident right away, and better cost-awareness helps justify preventive measures. So, let’s get into some power-disruption sources, cost impacts, and a way to help avoid them. Understanding diverse sources of power […]
When it comes to microgrids, it’s time to teach the old energy dog new tricks: The Pavlovian value of digitization
There is no question that large microgrids for commercial and industrial customers are complex systems. From development and conceptualization of the solution to the design-build stage to the long-term operations and maintenance of the system to meet performance requirements, there are many sophisticated workflows along the way. So how can energy stakeholders realize a microgrid’s […]
Microgrids are local energy systems with sources of generation, storage, and advanced automation and control.
This year, AlphaStruxure — in partnership with the MIT Mobility Initiative — hosted a Jeffersonian-style dinner with thought leaders and influencers participating in the global effort to transition the transportation industry to zero-emissions. Guests included members of academia as well as the public and private sectors. Recognizing the potential to tap into the wisdom in […]
We have all heard the adage: “Where there’s a will, there’s a way.” When it comes to making a sweeping shift from carbon-emitting transportation fleets to clean-breathing zero-emission vehicles, the will most certainly is strong. In the U.S. alone, 15 states and the District of Columbia have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to make strides […]
