Storage and Micro-grids

Hosted by Alevo and Duke Energy

Distributed generation and the need by certain users for absolute grid integrity have simultaneously evolved to catalyze yet additional grid innovation. Storage and micro-grids are now emerging to address infrequency, intermittency and power quality issues.
