An Emerging Approach to C&I Microgrids: Energy as a Service
Because they can deliver savings, sustainability and resilience, microgrids are growing in popularity across the U.S. and around the world. However, major barriers to microgrid adoption still remain, including cost, complexity and risk. But now, an emerging model – Energy as a Service – overcomes these barriers, delivering the benefits of microgrids while eliminating upfront cost and reducing risk. This Quicktalk by Juan Macias of AlphaStruxure, a joint venture of The Carlyle Group and Schneider Electric, will give an overview of their role in developing, financing, and operating microgrids through the Energy as a Service model for the public and private sectors, spanning infrastructure projects, energy-intensive commercial & industrial businesses, large-scale fleet electrification, and more.
