Island and remote community power grids rely on diesel and heavy fuel oil to meet electricity demand. The declining cost of renewable generation and battery energy storage systems (BESS) offers new energy options.

This webinar explores how the combination of BESS and smart automation systems unlocks lower-cost energy while increasing the use of renewables in remote areas and islands. With these technologies, it’s possible to achieve the highest penetration of renewables, increase grid stability and provide reliable power, all while minimizing CO2 emissions.

You’ll learn…

  • How to design a competitive solution to reduce the cost of energy while meeting the demand of a specific area.
  • How smart automation and control systems facilitate remote monitoring, operation and maintenance of various energy assets, while providing higher power quality and grid stability.
  • Lessons from real projects in islands and remote locations, to help frame future expectations.
