Microgrid

The Department of Energy has identified microgrids as a key component for improving power reliability and power quality nationwide. Unison Energy principals and our engineering partners have saved clients millions of dollars through the design, development, and implementation of CHP systems, solar, and fuel cells thereby creating comprehensive energy management programs for our clients.

A microgrid is a group of interconnected loads and distributed energy resources that act as a single controllable entity separate from the grid. A microgrid can connect and disconnect from the grid to allow it to operate in both grid-connected or island-mode. Unison Energy develops microgrid solutions that provide our clients with an energy optimization roadmap that reduces energy costs, increases reliability, and provides more environmentally friendly energy solutions. Our services Include:

  • Customized energy needs assessment to validate energy consumption today and where you will be in the future.
  • Create an energy model that fits your business model.
  • Provide an overview of various energy upgrades and retrofit alternatives, including CHP, solar, and battery storage and potential benefits of each, including available incentives.
  • Prioritize short and long-term energy optimization investments based on:
    • Return on Investment – including energy efficiencies, cost savings, tax savings and
    • Federal, State and utility incentives available, and
    • Corporate environmental goals, credentials and compliance (such as NY Local Law 82 and 84)
  • Design a master plan implementation strategy.

Your plan will be updated on a regular basis to track progress of energy improvements, reflect changing client business priorities, technology advancements, shifting economic conditions and Federal, State and utility incentive opportunities.
