As a loyal reader of our newsletters, we invite you to take a sneak peak at a new website that Energy Efficiency Markets is about to launch: MicrogridKnowledge.com.

MicrogridKnowledge.com is the first independent, international news and feature website dedicated solely to the microgrid market.

Microgrids are being installed worldwide at a rapid clip.  In North America, microgrids are providing back-up power, bolstering grid services, and adding clean and efficient power to the continent. In rural areas of India and Africa, microgrids are bringing much needed first-time electrification and better economic prospects.

We’re excited about telling the microgrid story on a site totally devoted to the topic.

Here’s who we see benefiting from MicrogridKnowledge.com.

  • Microgrid users, such as college campuses, data centers, municipalities, critical care facilities, eco-business parks, grocery stores, manufacturers, remote outposts, the military, and others that need reliable, high quality power.
  • Microgrid developers, utilities, component, system and fuel suppliers, investors, independent power producers, and those who provide combined heat and power, district energy and renewables, such as solar and wind.
  • Policymakers, regulators, grid operators, researchers, and others influencing the direction of the fast-growing industry.
  • And anyone who thinks microgrids are a good idea — we suspect that’s a lot of people.

You’ll see an official announcement when we launch MicrogridKnowledge.com in about a week. Meanwhile,  please take a look around and let us know what you think. If you find any glitches, like broken links, please let us know so that we can fix them.

And please feel free to send the MicrogridKnowledge.com link to friends and colleagues who are interested in this intriguing energy resource.

Thanks for your  interest in our sites. — Elisa Wood, Editor
