ENGIE EPS recently launched what the company bills as the world’s largest microgrid project — a 100-MW solar-storage platform* that will be capable of meeting all of the Micronesian island of Palau’s power needs.
It isn’t surprising that the company chose Palau for the project. Island states struggle more than others to deal with the threat of rising sea levels.
Pacific island nations in particular have been at the forefront of global initiatives to reduce greenhouse emissions as they face rising temperatures and sea levels. The American Samoa island of T’au meets 100 percent of its power needs, and does so in zero- or low-carbon emissions fashion — using a Tesla-built microgrid.ENGIE EPS Creates Harmony, Billed as the World’s Largest Microgrid - ENGIE-EPS-Creates-Harmony-Billed-as-the-World’s-Largest-Microgrid.pdf
