The Future of Energy Independence is Here
Sole reliance on the traditional power grid as our main energy source is proving to be a fallible strategy. As natural disasters, energy costs and cyber threats increasingly threaten the grid, blackouts are on the rise and causing catastrophic and costly consequences.
Microgrids – which can operate as part of the traditional grid or independently – are transforming the energy industry by transforming energy’s current utility-centric model to that of a hybrid distributed energy structure. This end user-generation approach s leads to fewer blackouts, cost savings, and less dependence on fossil fuels.
With Encorp Egility control system you gain a truly modular and configurable approach to assembling and managing a microgrid – one that enables you to integrate and control multiple distribute energy resources without the need for costly custom software. The result is a low cost, feature-rich solution that enables virtually any organization in need of dependable energy to easily reap the benefits generated by a microgrid.
Microgrid Primary Components
Distributed Energy Resources
Generators, Wind Turbines, Solar Power, Microturbines, Fuel Cells, etc.
An Advanced Energy Storage System

A Connection to an External Grid
A Control System
Provide interrupted power for critical loads with or without grid connection
Offer stability in adverse weather, which is extremely important in mission-critical operations such as data centers, hospitals and military bases
Can be hardened to aid in protecting both cyber and physical threats, which is critical in high-security environments including prisons and military bases
Optimize the use of renewables and time of power usage based on the cost of supply and demand
Can time the storage and use renewable energy – saving money and reducing carbon-dioxide emissions
The Encorp Approach
Encorp Egility enables developers and end-users to effectively integrate and optimize energy assets in order to deploy microgrids that reduce costs and improve reliability. Encorp’s three computing platform Egility serves as the heart of the system. The GoEgility delivers the control architecture required to integrate distributed energy resources, including wind turbines, solar power, and advanced battery-based storage devices, and the intelligence needed to balance these resources so that power is provided to the load in the most reliable and/or economical method possible.
The one-of-a-kind Egility combines the modular functionality of several traditional control modules, protective relays and communication devices into a single, solid-state assembly to reduce troublesome network interfaces between dis-similar controls. This standardized, modular approach to execution dramatically reduces engineering and assembly time for paralleling switchgear applications, enabling deployment lead times that are significantly less than the industry standard.
