Competitive Procurement for Microgrid Controller Technology
NREL is conducting a dual-stage (Solicitation for Letters of Interest and Request for Proposals) competitive procurement for microgrid control technology where up to five respondents will compete on state-of-the-art testbeds at the ESIF between June and December 2017. The top performer will have the opportunity for its microgrid controller to be purchased and made part of a permanent microgrid research testbed available to NREL researchers and other users of the ESIF.
