Micro-Generation / Mini-Grid / Micro-Grid

By June 23, 2022No Comments

For distributed renewable energy systems for energy access, a mini-grid/micro-grid typically refers to an independent grid network operating on a scale of less than 10 MW (with most at very small scale) which distributes electricity to a limited number of customers. Mini-/micro-grids also can refer to much larger networks (e.g., for corporate or university campuses) which can operate independently of, or in conjunction with, the main power grid. However, there is no universal definition differentiating mini- and micro-grids.
