How battery systems can integrate renewable energy in smart grids
How battery systems can integrate renewable energy in smart grids Wind and solar energy is not constant and therefore a renewables-based society requires smart grids to transport this power from areas where electricity generation is currently high to those where it is low in order to meet demand.
Households poised to become energy dealers
Households poised to become energy dealers Households and small businesses using independent power systems, or microgrids, still find it hard to cope without their national electricity grids.
