Microgrid Experience Center

Learn About Critical Infrastructure Preparedness

Today’s microgrid technology offers increased resiliency and lower energy costs, maximum power with minimum energy consumption. Continuity of operations is imperative to your business when the master grid goes down. Microgrid implementation helps eliminate costs associated with unanticipated outages.

Learn how you can: achieve enhanced reliability; eliminate stranded capacity; utilize modular deployments for rapid delivery and scalable growth.

WES.net, along with the Emerge Alliance and participating partners, have taken the difficulty out of how microgrids work. Our custom built, Virtual Microgrid 3D Demonstrator gives insight into the evolution and functionality of a microgrid, with a focus area targeting issues facing the Cable Industry. During your scheduled 30-minute presentation, you can interact via tablet connectivity to engage in multiple operational and emergency situations, view power system monitoring screens, relevant dashboards and possible scenario outcomes.

Your take-away from the presentation will be free access to the educational working tool that we’ve named Micro-pedia™, an electronic self-directed microgrid encyclopedia. This tool with feature access to information related to: how microgrids work; their use and application; the ability to explore the microgrid world; the technology behind the functionality; and the working anatomy of the microgrid.

Regardless of your key motivator, you must visit the Microgrid Experience Center in preparation for the 2020 Initiative. As microgrids are gaining tracking, the Cable Industry needs to push forward in its resiliency. Lean how to be proactive rather than react to a crisis situation.

WES.net, the EMerge Alliance and our industry partners wholly support your initiatives for improved energy resiliency and continuity. Our approach is straightforward in assessing conditions, consulting on improvements and assisting with integration initiatives.

We encourage you to come speak with our team of experts and interact with the Virtual Micgrogrid 3D Demonstrator.
