Decentralized Energy

We cover news, projects and announcements relating to decentralized energy. This includes electricity that is produced off the main power grid through the use of minigrids, microgrids, combined-cycle plants and other on-site hybrid solutions including storage. We cover power generation units using heating, cooling or renewable energy, to boost security of supply, energy efficiency, and rural electrification. We also provide insights on specific equipment such as steam or gas turbines, engines and batteries. This includes the operations and maintenance, digitalisation and performance monitoring of the equipment.
