The developing world is an obvious place for microgrids, but increasingly it looks like they should be a consideration closer to home. There are of course many benefits that a microgrid can bring to European and US businesses, but with increasingly savage and erratic weather, on both sides of the Atlantic, resilience has to be a critical factor.  What business can operate for long without power? Certainly not ours.  The business cases for energy storage and renewables keep mounting, just as costs keep decreasing.  Our campus would be be a great example, but it's hard enough trying to get some EV points installed at present (come on CBRE). Maybe this winter will provide further examples of the need to be at least partially grid independent for many businesses.
