Nanogrids, the Building Blocks for Virtual Power Plants, Help Create a Sustainable Environment
Concerns about resiliency in remote communities have raised the importance of nanogrids as self-sufficient systems that can integrate local generation units, energy storage, and advanced control systems. Nanogrids can operate independently from the traditional grid and ensure reliable electric power to underserved communities that the traditional grid has failed to provide. As nanogrids are smaller in size than microgrids, they are more capable of resisting extreme weather events, which helps improve their resiliency, and the community’s.
This report reviews the opportunities for nanogrids in underserved communities, their various technology combinations, and how a solar plus storage nanogrid can be a win-win situation for prosumers and the electric grid. The report also evaluates nanogrids as building blocks for virtual power plants (VPPs) and energy communities, and looks at how regulatory and market adjustments can improve their adoption.
