Microgrid

PRODUCT OVERVIEW

ELM Energy’s FieldSight MicroGrid
solution uses best in class hardware in
combination with sophisticated backend
architecture and communication interfaces
to enable the operator to efficiently
monitor and control their various MicroGrid
assets from a single portal.

KEY FEATURES

Generation Optimization and Balancing

  • Automatically maximize the use of renewables in generation profile
  • Optimize operation of traditional fossil based generation
  • Reduce total operating costs and Green House Gas Emissions

Increased Power Reliability

  • Maintain a consistent power source no matter the status of “grid” power
  • Easily create “Islanded” MicroGrid’s when required
  • Manage power demand to match available power supply reducing grid instability

FieldSight Energy Insight

  • The FieldSight portal gives MicroGrid operators the ability to make educated decisions andvalidate and track activities
  • Regardless of equipment type, monitor and control all MicroGrid assets in a single portal

APPLICATIONS

Off the Grid MicroGrid Installations

  • Create consistent “islanded” power when utility power isn’t available
  • Maximize the production of available renewables
  • Increase power reliability through complete MicroGrid monitoring and control

Grid-Tied MicroGrid Installations

  • Maintain a consistent power source no matter the status of utility power
  • Use On-Site Generation when utility power is most expensive
  • Maximize the return on investment from On-Site Generation

Distributed Generation

  • Create a revenue source from your Generation assets by selling back to the Utility
  • Autonomous dispatch of generation assets when
    economics justify operation
