Grid-Connected Microgrids

Modernize your electrical infrastructure with a fully integrated microgrid.

NantEnergy’s reliable, eco-friendly technology is the smarter solution for deploying institutional, community, and military microgrids.

Get better service, better data, and less complexity for hassle-free operation with NantEnergy.

Whether you provide reliable power for a university campus, military base, or an entire community, you face increasingly ambitious renewable energy targets, along with emissions regulations. You also have to ensure reliability, even as climate change causes more frequent and damaging extreme weather events that disrupt aging grids.

With energy resilience a must, there is a global shift toward investing in smaller, cleaner, and smarter distributed energy resources. Microgrids based on renewable generation—like solar—with advanced intelligent battery storage not only provide reliable power, they also allow aggregation and optimization, creating virtual power plants.

NantEnergy’s zinc-based batteries are technologically advanced and environmentally friendly, providing cost-effective and long-term power. Managed with our predictive software, NantEnergy can offer integrated microgrids that are efficient, intelligent, and long-lived.

Making Energy Storage Smart

While NantEnergy’s breakthrough zinc-air batteries are practical for storage, it is the company’s advanced energy management software that gives this reliable recharging system so much flexibility; it is this unprecedented level of flexibility that provides users with a high degree of visibility, efficacy, and insight. Utilizing embedded sensors and code, this innovative software is able to offer the customer unparalleled transparency in product performance, health assessment, and control.

The intelligence and management functions—built into both the individual cell and module levels—enable the end-user to conduct previously unattainable analytics of their operations, including outage duty cycle profiles, load profiles, real-time tampering or vandalism alarms, cell health, diesel runtime, and more. These capabilities offer customers an extraordinary degree of operational storage intelligence…which is critical to meeting user needs and supporting their business:

  • Governments can gather data from remote microgrids, to assess the growing energy needs or actual energy sustainability of these remote communities.
  • Utilities can capture an instant picture of how storage is meeting peak demand.
  • Commercial and industrial businesses can have visibility into their energy savings—in real-time.

And for customers that want to shift their energy spending from a CapEx to an OpEx, NantEnergy’s systems are also available as EaaS (Energy-as-a-Service) systems; this model represents the future of storage for every use, in every part of the world.
