Whether your goal is to bring power to a remote location or improve reliability and energy security, there is a microgrid that meets your needs. Microgrid categories are organized by their connection mode to the main grid (off-grid or grid-connected) and their type of ownership (facility or community). Categorizing microgrids is a priority because it allows for standardized designs that enable the creation of repeatable, modular, and scalable systems.
