In the latest from On the Grid Edge, host Peter Asmus chats with Tim Hade, co-founder of Scale Microgrid Solutions. Tim sheds light on the pivotal role of modularity and standardization in microgrid development, and the challenge of deploying microgrids at scale.

Scale Microgrid Solutions, a vertically-integrated microgrid platform specializing in commercial and industrial spaces, has been at the forefront of industry innovation for over a decade. Tim emphasizes the resilience benefits that microgrids bring to industries reliant on consistent power, as well as the transformative potential of virtual power plants (VPPs). Listen in to learn how VPPs aggregate distributed energy resources (DERs) effectively, reducing the overall cost of the energy transition and addressing challenges posed by the traditional electricity system.

Learn how collective efforts within the industry are driving positive change and a future where resilience challenges are met with innovative new energy solutions.
