Microgrid Report

Xero Energy provided Highlands and Islands Enterprise and Scottish Government with a briefing report on microgrids and private wire systems explaining their types and function, technical issues, regulatory and legal aspects, costs and uses.  The key drivers for interest in microgrids and private wire systems of overcoming grid constraints and providing a local energy supply were examined to assess and understand value. The work also included discussion with the various stakeholders on best practice, good and less good examples of private wire system proposals, and guidance on how to evaluate and/or approach microgrid and private wire design.

The report is publicly available along with evaluation and guidance sheets for those considering such energy systems.
