Power Analytics Named Leading Software Company in Microgrid Space


Power AnalyticsSan Diego, Calif., Jan. 13, 2014 In a new Microgrids Report, Navigant Research has named Power Analytics Corp. one of the three leading software companies participating in the growing microgrid space. The report, “Microgrids”, profiles key market players and analyzes the global market for microgrids in five key segments (commercial/industrial, community/utility, campus/institutional, military, and remote) and two new sub segments (grid-tied UDMs and DC microgrids).

“Power Analytics is among a host of innovators addressing the increasing complexity of resources being integrated into microgrids,” said Peter Asmus, principal research analyst with Navigant Research. “As a cornerstone to the large microgrid operating at the University of California, San Diego, it is on the cutting edge of modeling and real-time optimization that is often necessary for larger and sophisticated microgrid deployments. Its current work with the U.S. Navy is also demonstrating that microgrids can create value streams for larger utility systems.”

Power Analytics is now working on the Department of Defense’s Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP) project to demonstrate the management and control of a secure cluster of microgrids at three U.S. Navy facilities in the San Diego area, improving energy security, reducing costs, and fully integrating renewable energy sources into the military electrical infrastructure.

"Microgrids" provides an analysis of the market issues, including business cases, opportunities, and implementation challenges, associated with microgrids. The report also examines the main technologies related to microgrids and identifies nine different business models applicable to microgrid development. An executive summary of the report is available for free download on the Navigant Research website.
