Unlocking microgrids: orchestrating energy intelligence

 

 

 

With recent focus on reducing inflation through the use of microgrids, coupled with legislation that will reduce the cost of such grids by up to 50%, microgrids and virtual power plants are the prudent energy solution of choice for organizations across the U.S.

As a network orchestrator, ENX brings together cross-functional, multi-disciplinary technology and expertise to build the energy ecosystems the future requires. Our scalable platform elevates the siloed asset and energy service platform models and unlocks opportunity and value across the entire energy chain.

Microgrid Benefits and Outcomes:

Efficient, low-cost, clean energy
 
Operational and stability improvement of the regional electric grid
 
Critical infrastructure that increases reliability and resilience
 
Reduction of grid "congestion" and peak loads
 
Enablement of highly efficient cogeneration (CHP), reducing fuel use, line losses and carbon footprint
 
Integration of grid interactive efficient buildings (GEBs)
 
Investment in local energy resources and jobs
 
Diversified risk across the energy portfolio
 
Local management of variable renewable generation, particularly on-site solar through the use of electric and thermal storage capabilities

Microgrids-as-a-service

When properly designed, a regional power grid that combines both large central plants and distributed microgrids can be build with less total capital cost, less installed generation, high capacity factor on all assets and higher reliability

  • SMART STREETLIGHT MODERNIZATION LED technology integrated with a connected network can reduce street light usage by 80%, optimize maintenance and operations, reduce greenhouse gases and improve public safety and community livability.
  • DISTRIBUTED SOLAR PV Solar Photovoltaic (PV) panels can meet 65% of residential electricity needs, reduce CO2, create jobs and provide opportunities for participation in various incentive programs.
  • GREEN INFRASTRUCTURE Green Infrastructure implementation can lead to many community-wide benefits, including increased property values, enhanced community resiliency, job creation, flood-risk mitigation and improvement in public health.
  • DEEP RETROFITS Retrofitting existing buildings with more efficient electric, HVAC, water and BMS technologies can reduce energy costs by up to 49%, reduce greenhouse gasses, improve operations and occupant health, extend the life of buildings and has a payback period of one and a half to five years.
  • GREEN FLEETS Implementing a streamlined green fleet program can result in a 20% fuel reduction, improved public health and air quality, reduced O&M costs and greenhouse gas or petroleum use and take advantage of IEPA rebates for electric vehicles.
