  • Energy quality: service quality, to avoid customer dissatisfaction

  • Energy awareness: aware use of energy by end-users 

Services

  • Strategic planning (site assessment)

  • Microgrid optimal design (renewable energy sources basket, sizing)  

  • O&M (load balancing, remote control, anomaly detection predictive maintenance)

  • Energy awareness and payments services (pay-as-you-go, smart-booking, priority-booking, community leasing, tele-medicine, tele-education, O&M training)

Users

  • Decision makers (policy makers, funding entities, local entities and regulators)

  • Microgrids designers and developers

  • Microgrid owner operators (MGOs) 

  • End-users 

Benefits

  • Better microgrid planning, reduced economical risk and socio-econimic impact awareness
