Type of Organization: Energy Production - Renewables
General MicroGrids, Inc. (GMI) is an end-to-end solution provider for renewable energy technologies and transformational microgrid construction. GMI’s Balance Energy intelligent energy software platform “iESP”, manages microgrid control, dispatchable renewable generation and resource control systems for campuses, industrial complexes, electric cooperatives, small communities and distribution utilities. Safe, controllable and reliable microgrids integrating renewable generation are complimentary infrastructure with customer assets that increase grid reliability, stabilize long-term energy costs, and mitigate negative environmental impact.
General MicroGrids recognizes the need to better manage distributed energy resources for medium to large customers, which will reduce emissions, stabilize operating costs and secure a reliable energy supply. We combine large scale systems delivery experience applying utility smart grid, renewable generation, controls systems and cyber security domain expertise that enable the safe and reliable deployment of distributed generation assets.
General MicroGrids is redefining how microgrids and renewable generation are integrated and leveraged by utility customers and end users alike. Historically, microgrids were viewed as “islands” servicing small customer campuses at the end of a feeder line. With our new control systems, that is no longer the case. These reliable and secure control systems balance demand against supply and enable utilities the flexibility to safely and cost-effectively manage and control a network of new distributed generation assets along with their legacy centralized assets.
