Decentralised micro-grids such as ours are becoming increasingly common as an efficient, low carbon and cost effective method for meeting energy needs. For decentralised energy to grow, it is important that micro-grid systems can generate sufficient revenue from the sale of the produced energy and through any supporting governmental support.

Using the sliders you can set the rates charged for energy produced by EBRI’s micro-grid. Set the cost and revenue rates using live data to make the system break-even or make a profit.
