As the European grid transitions to new energy, it is becoming more complex and volatile. We are becoming increasingly dependent on a resilient electricity system for mobility, heat and home working. Conventional approaches to resilience are often costly and polluting; innovative alternatives including microgrids are being already being explored and encouraged by regulators across Europe. We can therefore expect to see significant growth in microgrids providing resilience in the coming years. This growth in microgrids can and should be used to enhance system performance and facilitate innovative business models including those represented by citizen engagement.
