A sustainable, flexible and resilient electricity solution in microgrids

Resilient electricity-providing solutions are increasingly in demand as climate change continues and customers demand sustaining and sustainable electricity, JLL writes in a new report, Resilient solutions: The case for microgrids.

The report cites projections for the size of the global microgrid market by early 2030 as ranging from $65 billion to $206.1 billion.

In its report, JLL addresses the various ways that microgrids are a sound development for today’s and tomorrow’s energy ecosystems, noting that they mitigate power-outage risk, that they help to achieve corporate-sustainability goals by reducing dirty-energy use and that they drive profitability
