Efficiently manage urban and rural microgrids

Microgrid

From siting to end-user services, our suite of software and app allows to efficiently manage a microgrid project both in urban and rural areas of developing countries. The services, effectively exploiting EO satellites and SatCom links, provide enhanced microgrid integrated services for strategic site selection, optimal design, and management of O&M.

  • Microgrid sizing and design with the best components choice
  • Analysis of enabled services: tele-education, tele-medicine, smart payment, priority booking

Benefits

  • Reduce LCOE
  • Capital expenditure optimization
  • Operation expenditure optimization

MICROGRID

Tailor

This service can identify the best microgrid design, taking into account the local energy sources availability (exploiting EO images) and the sustainability, scalability and stability of the microgrid which is expected to be created.

MICROGRID

Manager

This service can manage and monitor the microgrid, in terms of load balancing, black-out prevention and control, microgrid components fault detection and prediction, also supporting a sustainable maintenance strategy.

Features
