The Encorp Egility™ controller offers an advanced, feature-rich Distributed Energy Resource (DER) control platform. Embedded with standardized hardware, the Encorp Egility can provide project developers and end users with a myriad of optimization sequences tailored toward both real-time and longer-term project requirements. The modularized platform offers the best of two worlds. First, the ability to ship in-stock standardized hardware products rapidly to the field to streamline the microgrid deployment process, shrinking the customized engineering costs that can sometimes kill projects. Second, is the ability to customize the solution not through costly on-site hardware modifications, but through advanced software configured to meet the specific project requirements; whether the core system use be a microgrid, Combined Heat & Power (CHP) or Demand Response (DR) application. By combining standardized hardware with customizable software, the Encorp Egility can be offered to customers at an attractive price point, while also reducing overall development costs. In summary, the Encorp Egility realizes the long-sought after Holy Grail of DER system-level control: a modular design offering a rapid rollout coupled with unparalleled configurability, all at market-realistic price point.
With the field-tested Encorp Gold Box at its core, the new multi-application Encorp Egility integrates two other computing platforms into its optimization engine: an industrial-grade Human Machine Interface (HMI) and a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC). One could argue that the end result represents among the most advanced distributed energy control platform currently being offered to the market. The Egility is a culmination of Encorp’s almost-30-year legacy of bringing on-line over 400 DER control systems which are currently operating around the world. These projects span North America, Europe and the Asia Pacific regions, each fine-tuned to meet the distinct needs of customers, whether looking for resiliency, renewable energy integration, load optimization or economic savings. The Egility can deliver each of these value stacks, either individually or collectively, based on any customer’s specific needs.
