Microgrids – connecting entities smaller than cities that are able to accommodate their own generation and operate independently from the larger grid if necessary, (such as smaller villages or university campuses) – are gaining importance. This book describes the latest technology in microgrids and economic, environmental and policy aspects of their implementation, including microgrids for cold regions, and future trends. The aim of this work is to give a complete overview of the latest technology around the world, and the interrelation with clean energy systems.

International case studies are included.

Topics covered include:

* Key concepts and definitions
* Microgrid communication and control
* Storage systems for microgrids
* Microgrid reliability
* Clean generation in microgrids
* Country case studies
* Economics and policies
