Microgrids and Demand Response hold the potential to be two of the most impactful developments in smart grid expansion. Small self-sustaining power networks within the larger grid system can provide a higher level of local reliability than what is provided by the entire power system as a whole and implement an infrastructure that collects load data and more. By gathering more data from different parts of the grid, microgrids allow for more informed distribution of power throughout the entire grid and more efficient use of power at peak load and throughout the day.
