Microgrids Explained


A microgrid is a localized, small-scale power grid that can operate either autonomously or in collaboration with other small-scale power grids and often serves a distinct geographical footprint, such as shopping centers, hospitals, and communities.

Thus, microgrids are usually attached to a centralized national power grid and are a type of subsystems connected to the public grid at a single point. This connection acts as a switch that allows a microgrid to be disconnected from the public grid (in case of power failure, etc.) and enables it to temporarily operate in island mode.

Microgrids can strengthen grid resilience, help mitigate grid disruption, and act as a grid resource for fast system response and recovery.

  • Sources for locally producing energy, such as photovoltaics, wind turbines, and geothermal heat pumps.
  • A smart management system that ensures the ongoing balance between electricity generation and demand.
  • A storage system, including batteries, hydrogen, and pumped hydro.
  • Matching of peaks in demand with production of energy.
  • The smart management of microgrids allows not only energy, but also information to be transmitted. This information is utilized to manage energy use as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible.
  • Optimize automated applications.

Cenfura’s improvements in the monitoring, control, and digital payments of microgrids have dramatically upgraded the ability to provide energy services. Microgrids today have enormous potential as part of the global effort to provide access to reliable electricity for the 1.2 billion people who currently do not enjoy this access.

Cenfura’s platform and token system maximizes the potential of microgrids by utilizing the advantages of power production and storage in coordination with Cenfura’s smart technology to provide 24/7 Green Power. Cenfura’s tokens allow for a fully automated system in-line with household estimated usage calculated by the smart technology.

All of this is managed using Cenfura’s digital token and the Cenfura Exchange.
