Integrating decentralized renewable energy solutions with existing utilities infrastructure.
This model seeks to integrate decentralized renewable energy generation and storage technologies with existing utilities infrastructure to provide power when it is needed the most. The project seeks to push current policy and regulatory frameworks, engage local community participation and pave the way for technologically innovative grid-interactive projects in the future. Grid integration can enable end-users to rise in the energy access ladder. For ESCOs (energy service companies), grid integration may provide an opportunity to increase revenue by selling surplus electricity to utilities. Utilities can view ESCOs as a franchisee for last mile voltage drops, especially where grid cannot be extended or is not viable.
