    • Solar  Microgrid  Functions   •  Management  of  EV  load  in  synch  with  demand  reduction  and   solar/wind  generation  ramps   •  Energy  storage  to  mitigate  Fast  Charge  grid  impacts  and   emergency  power  in  the  home   •  Low  power  bi-­‐directional  energy  management  of  PEVs  –   integration  with  commercial  building  DC  bus   •  Vehicle  to  building  peak  load  reduction   •  Vehicles  as  a  flexible  MicroGrid  component   •  Charging  vehicles  from  Solar  directly   Copyright© by Evolution7 17
    • A Very Different Future? •  As the number of loads and generators connected to the grid increases; –  the controllability and control model of the grid will change –  reliability will only be maintained through distributed intelligence and control •  Complexities at the edge – DR programs, DG programs, MicroGrids, grid divorce, AMI / HAN •  This strongly suggests a more highly distributed energy system will play a major role in the modern grid.

    • Hybrid Integrated Systems (Microgrid) Trends •  MicroGrids  will  con1nue  to  be  an    important  niche  for  high-­‐ reliability  and  emerging  markets  (premium  product  or  grid   parity  driven)   •  Integrated  systems  with  capabili1es  to  locally  reduce  the   renewable  genera1on  variability  (VRG)  in  output  will  increase   the  viability  of  renewables   •  Predic1on  that  hybrid  systems  (Renewables  and  natural  gas,   Renewables  and  storage,  Grid-­‐Friendly  Renewables)  will   become  the  next  mass  market  product  (Grid  Variability  +   Economics  +  Risk  Reduc1on  +  Co-­‐loca1on  with  home  solar   and  Electric  Vehicles  ==  Solar  Microgrids   Copyright© by Evolution7
