Advances in Gensets: Powering Diverse Configurations

|

Advances and technologies that improve performance ensure gensets are more reliable than ever before. Today, gensets run on diesel and natural gas. Tier 4 technology ensures cleaner air quality. They can run in parallel. Improved control systems are bringing “smart” technology to gensets. And systems are less noisy due to  … Read More

Distributed energy resources (DERs) are valuable components of the modern power grid. They are active players in electricity markets and important tools for supporting grid operations. Last week Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD), the Smart Electric Power Alliance (SEPA), and engineering firm Black & Veatch produced a report that outlines a  … Read More

Fuel cell technology is elegant in its simplicity. An anode, a cathode, and an electrolyte allow positively charged hydrogen ions to move between the two sides of the cell, converting chemical energy into electricity. And the only bi-product is water.

Why, then, has this form of energy storage not been widely  … Read More

However they are defined, everyone agrees community microgrids provide benefits. Centralized utility systems and aboveground distribution lines expose customers to regional and local outages, “and while they are highly reliable, centralized utility grids can’t ensure local resilience,” notes Peter Douglass, project manager for the Microgrid Institute, a collaborative organization supporting global development of microgrids and distributed energy  … Read More
