Smart Distribution and Storage
Energy is of little value without distribution in modern society. Diversification of energy supplies to include significant renewable components requires major storage capabilities, as renewable energy sources such as wind and solar are intermittently available. Advanced approaches to manage power flow through an electric grid are an essential part of future management that allow for more distributed energy inputs.
ND Energy is developing smart micro-grid technology and energy storage including the design of scalable network communication protocols and grid-tied storage applications in ultra-low power circuits.
