Microgrids Solutions

Providing resilient and economical power.

With Jenbacher technology, you can generate and manage your microgrid assets more efficiently and sustainably. Microgrids ensure continuous operation during grid outages while also stabilizing the utility grid, reducing outage risk. Reliable dispatchable energy is needed to support the integration of renewable energy in today’s fast-evolving energy landscape, and Jenbacher engines are an excellent fit as a dispatchable energy resource. Gas-powered systems will continue to replace diesel gensets in microgrids where gas is available due to their superior fuel efficiency and lower carbon footprint.

  • Industry Trends
    Decentralization, decarbonization, digitalization, and electrification. These four trends are at the heart of the climate transition, and they underpin the energy transformation happening around the globe. Increasingly, decentralization projects are putting smaller-scale power plants to use to provide stable and efficient power at hospitals, airports, and communities. The impacts of decarbonization efforts are being felt across industries, businesses, and even households as the acceleration of renewables and the ever-increasing energy demand brings the need to boost grid resilience to reduce the risk of blackouts. Increased digitalization necessitates more reliable power and resilient mission-critical infrastructure. And, as access to energy improves globally, the demand for electrification, and its associated costs, continues to rise.

The Jenbacher approach

Controls and digital solutions for microgrids

INNIO’s innovative digital solutions enable you to control, manage, and optimize your energy assets and lower your carbon footprint.

The microgrid controller

Our new feature-rich Jenbacher microgrid controller integrates a wide selection of distributed energy resources (DERs) such as renewables and storage devices while ensuring high power reliability and plant uptime. Microgrids can be connected to the grid or operated in island mode. In island mode, our microgrid controller supports its highest priority—power reliability—by maintaining frequency and voltage for any given load scenario. In the unlikely event of a total outage, the Jenbacher microgrid controller and Jenbacher genset are black start capable.

myPlant Optimization

We further improve your economics and optimize energy management by connecting the microgrid to the optional myPlant Optimization offering. This artificial intelligence (AI)-based solution takes a holistic approach, improving the operational efficiency of your entire plant portfolio—from engine and heat pump to heat storage and the photovoltaic system—while taking operational requirements and annual targets into account.
