Distributed Power Generation

Distributed power generation is the installation and operation of small modular power-generating units at or near the end user. It is used mainly to reduce transmission and distribution losses and to improve reliability by combining energy management and storage systems. A distributed power generation system can be based on a renewable or nonrenewable energy source and can be operated in either a connected grid mode or an off-grid mode.
