After explaining what a microgrid is, in our interview Michael delves into the sophisticated and precious enterprise of “microgrids as a service” — which, notably, doesn’t entail constructing microgrids for others however somewhat offering the software program and modeling instruments to design and construct good microgrids.

It’s an advanced matter while you delve into what Xendee does and the way in depth the modeling framework is. Nonetheless, the great factor is that it permits corporations or establishments that need microgrids a reasonably easy solution to get them designed, constructed, and off the bottom.

Michael additionally offers some examples of microgrid initiatives he has labored on, together with a significant army challenge.

We additionally talked at size about California photo voltaic web metering on the finish of the interview.
