Microgrids for Clean & Resilient Operations

Thursday, March 12

09:30 am - 10:20 am
Gaining traction globally, renewables-based micro- and minigrids can respond to increasingly frequent power disruptions that follow extreme climate events, offering grid customers an alternative to high power tariffs and emerging markets universal access to power. However, the number of microgrid projects globally remains limited compared with the market potential. What are the main drivers for microgrid implementation? Why hasn’t the market reached its full potential? What are the key challenges, and how can these barriers be overcome?
