Microgrids: new clean energy.

A new milestone for the future of clean energy and eco-sustainability has been reached with the introduction of “microgrids”: localised grids designed to operate independently of centralised power sources in emergencies, but also to optimize distribution of energy sources.

Microgrids are able to store energy sourced from photovoltaic panels and wind farms, and supply it locally. They could be used to increase capacity for communities during power outages, serving schools and hospitals.
