A microgrid is a localised electrical grid acting as a single and controllable entity. Able to provide power during a natural disaster a microgrid must be robust, reliable and able to operate in both grid-connected and island mode. In a fast evolving world of product shortages and the rising cost of electricity and fuel microgrids and hybrid electric power generation systems are meeting a growing demand for flexible, sustainable and cost effective power solutions. For life savings and critical operations, disaster preparedness begins with reliable power. In areas of ultra clean diesel power generation technology Volvo Penta is ahead of the curve.
Microgrids - the future of disaster preparedness and energy efficiency, can make a significant contribution to a greener planet. They can combine renewable energies and can offer solution for a clean and efficient energy supply. Microgrids can support a flexible and efficient power grid by enabling the integration of green energy sources like wind and solar. A blended microgrid can provide disaster and recovery backup power option by connecting to a local resource that may be too small or unreliable for traditional power grid integration. For transformer retrofits to electrical infrastructure upgrades, Volvo Penta are leaders in power generation technology.
Made to move with the elements, through grace, respect and ingenuity, Volvo Penta engines are the perfect environmentally sustainable power solution for electromobility at sea, for container terminals, hospitals, power plants and wide range equipment applications in a variety of industries.

AmerisourceBergen Corporation is an American drug wholesale company that was formed by the merger of Bergen Brunswig and AmeriSource in 2001. They provide drug distribution and consulting related to medical business operations and patient services. Before the 300,000-square-foot facility opened in Carrollton Texas, in 2019, company leaders recognized that disaster preparedness begins with reliable power. Company leaders recognized it needed a reliable power source to protect these critical lifesaving medications if the power grid ever went down. Company leaders hoped however that they would never have to use it. Fast forward to February 2021 when frigid temperatures brought chaos to roads and wreaked havoc on the Texas energy infrastructure. The winter storm left millions of residents without power and thousands of businesses unable to operate. But the important work conducted at AmerisourceBergen continued.
