ProspectSV - Microgrid & DER Innovation Call


ProspectSV is looking for innovative energy solutions for microgrid infrastructure technologies, DERs and building level systems.  Below is a summary of technology types we are seeking.

Microgrid infrastructure (primary emphasis):

Preferred platforms and products will provide simplified (ideally off-the-shelf) integration between existing & new DERs, the Building Management Systems (BMS), and grid signals using recognized industry protocols for communication and security.

Overall goal of this system will also provide analytics/controls/intelligence for:

operational resiliency through grid islanding/reconnection, relaying and protection, and power quality corrections direct financial benefits of demand forecasting, electric rate optimization, and scheduling grid-level services such as voltage and frequency regulation

Distributed Energy Resources (secondary emphasis) such as:

  • On-site generation (excluding PV panels)
  • On-site electricity storage
  • Thermal storage technologies – especially related to refrigeration
  • Building-level systems (tertiary emphasis) such as:
  • DC-side building technologies
  • Energy Efficiency technologies – especially related to refrigeration
