Microgrid Energy Systems

Communities and organizations are looking for innovative ways to address energy delivery concerns—ensuring reliable power in the face of disaster, meeting new regulations, building stable and efficient infrastructure. As stand-alone electrical systems, microgrids can provide a reliable, efficient solution to unexpected power loss and help optimize energy usage. See how Eaton brings together decades of experience to support microgrid and energy storage system deployment.

Innovation story

innovationOver the past 100 years, Eaton has been on the forefront of solving nearly every challenge of electrical power management. So it’s little surprise that, in the early 2000s, Eaton engineers began exploring mobile power systems projects. Today, Eaton offers a modular microgrid energy system design that leverages industry-leading substation hardware, efficiently scales to meet a wide range of applications, and adapts to evolving generation and load assets
