Collaborate: Microgrid Controller

By April 26, 2023No Comments

FirstIgnite is supporting the commercialization of Stony Brook University’s microgrid controller technology, which uses software-defined control (SDC) architecture for microgrids. This architecture virtualizes traditionally hardware-dependent microgrid control functions as software services, resulting in cost savings, easier upgrades, and improved performance by separating these functions from the underlying hardware infrastructure.

This technology has applications in the energy sector, including microgrids and distributed energy resources integration, smart grid management, and resilient and adaptive electricity networks. The global microgrid market is expected to increase from $8.74 billion in 2022 to $23.49 billion by 2029.

Stony Brook University’s microgrid controller technology is ready for collaboration (licensing, partnerships, industry feedback, etc.). Is your company the right fit? If you’d be available for a conversation with the Stony Brook University team, you can schedule a time directly on their team’s calendar here.
