How It Works Section
Entrust Smart Microgrid harnesses the true power of local/onsite renewable energy at low cost and high efficiency based on our patented DC-networked smart microgrid technology.
Indeed, Entrust Smart Microgrid is true bridge to the clean energy revolution - utilising every watt of renewable energy and making maximum use all electricity generated locally for use around the home or office.
At over 98.6% efficiency, our world leading technology eliminates power conversion loss between DC and AC currents – yet is uniquely happy handling both DC and AC loads.
With Solar PV, wind and other renewable power all generated in DC current, the existing practice of generating in DC to convert to AC current to either use or export back to the grid is now a costly and un-necessary step thanks to Entrust Smart Microgrid technology.
Our technology allows you to use all your locally generated and/or stored electricity from renewables to power your heating, hot water, refrigeration, air conditioning and electric vehicle charging – along with other appliances/devices at the highest possible efficiency.
But that’s not all. At times when renewable energy is not available, thanks to its bi-directional hybrid grid connection, you can simply take electricity from the grid in the normal way. Equally, when renewable sources are strong you can also store or send your locally generated electricity back to the grid - in the same way as any other solar/renewable installation.
Plus with the ability to support a solar PV installation of up to 10kW – without any expensive grid modifications (i.e. a standard, single-phase grid connection) Entrust Smart Microgrid system offers a six-year pay back period compared to an eleven-year payback for a standard solar PV installation. Making the cost savings and business clear.
In addition, Entrust Smart Microgrid has the flexibility to deliver true renewable energy and energy storage solutions at scale in a robust and reliable way.
Our system solutions are also fully IoT (Internet of Things) enabled. So that with the touch of a smart phone, users can turn up their heating, charge their car or set the hot water for a bath or shower. Using the most efficient and cost effective form of electricity available.
Entrust Smart Microgrid is truly a game changing way to meet the power needs of tomorrow… today!
