Remote Microgrid Business Models

The Business Implications of High Renewable Energy Penetration

Remote MicrogridsIn the last year, remote microgrid projects around the world have risen in visibility and viability, with the penetration of renewable energy in these off-grid networks increasing sharply in many regions of the world.  Developers are now focusing on creating flexible business models that enable innovative technologies, such as new energy storage technologies and smart load management, to profitably drive renewables to higher levels of system level penetration.

Featuring principal research analyst Peter Asmus, along with Peter Lilienthal, CEO of HOMER Energy, and Stephen Drouilhet, managing director of Sustainable Power Systems, this webinar presents recently updated Navigant Research capacity and revenue forecasts for the key remote microgrid segments, as well as the findings of a survey of HOMER Energy users related to the emerging business models, technical challenges, and chief benefits of renewable energy-based remote microgrids.  Also including case studies of remote microgrids being deployed around the world, the webinar provides attendees with real-world lessons for establishing and running microgrids independent of the wider utility power grid.
