The opportunities and benefits that microgrids offer their project owners include:
• Increased penetration and impact of renewable energy sources;
• Experience with new DER and control technologies and business models; and
• Additional electric system resiliency and availability.
Despite their attractiveness, microgrids can have technical performance challenges that are most cost-effectively addressed at the project start. The list of issues common to microgrid projects are most of the standard problems that come up in any complex electric power system project, along with a handful of technical challenges that are unique.
