Microgrid solutions for Utility

Renewable energy sources will have a bigger play in the energy mix, making the network more susceptible to variations. GE has the capability to offer end to end turnkey microgrid solutions that can include individual build blocks such as controls and BESS up to full turnkey solutions. We´ve been supporting utilities throughout our entire history and through leveraging multiple GE businesses we provide an even more comprehensive solution.


GE’s microgrid utility solutions can help reducing emissions and decarbonize, enabling renewables, and improving the reliability and resilience of your application.

With the need to integrate multiple energy sources while keeping the grid stable, utilities are facing some challenges.

The demand for energy is constantly increasing. The need to integrate renewable resources is growing. With the growing integration of renewables to the grid, you need greater dispatchability to support network stability and maintain system reliability.

Extreme events like unplanned outages, brown-outs, and blackouts, are increasing—in both frequency and intensity.

You're experiencing reliability challenges as a result of the decentralization of the energy supply, which creates bi-directional power flows. You're installing more distributed generation assets, at an increasingly faster pace. With increased system complexity, you’re realizing a greater need for digitization and enhanced communication capabilities.
