Grids & Storage

Connecting renewable energy to your daily life...

New technologies enable us to exploit renewable energy resources, but truly harnessing their energy requires the ability to control and adapt to the complex interaction between multiple sources and users.

Smart grid technology will enable systems that can adapt to the variation in supply that is common from renewable sources, while new storage technologies will make it possible to retain energy generated at during peak times to be withheld for later use.

Developing hybrid grids that can accommodate both AC and DC power, accommodating distributed generation, and effectively interfacing with legacy grid systems will be essential to our energy future.
