Many underserved communities, rural and urban, rely on weak grid connections or sit completely off the grid. Often, these communities suffer outages or must rely on expensive external power sources, such as gensets, which use fuels that are costly to transport.

Microgrids are an emerging solution that tackles these issues. By managing different assets intelligently—such as solar generation, batteries, and gensets—microgrids can provide low-cost energy that communities can rely on. They can incorporate renewable energy sources and provide power in case of a grid outage. In this Guidehouse Insights webinar, the second in a three-part series, the panel will explore the role microgrids play in ensuring that underserved communities have reliable access to affordable energy and how that access makes them more resilient.
