Micro Grids

The use of micro-grids has a long history, micro-grids were used to provide electricity to small towns right from the beginning of the electricity era in the late 19th to mid-20th century; in most developing countries micro-grids still play an important role supplying electricity to small towns and villages, and the IEA (International Energy Agency) estimates that micro-grids will play a critical role in the future providing electricity services in developing countries, with a share of electricity supply to about 40% of people presently without electricity.
