The simplest definition of a Microgrid was brought forward by Philip Gladek, CEO at Spectral, who described a Microgrid as a network of electricity supply and demand from different users (with storage if possible) that is able to operate both independently and connected to the centralized grid.

Through the use of transmission and distribution lines, that energy is then delivered to the end customers. However, with the recent surge of renewable energy projects, driven by accelerated cost reductions, centralized energy production is becoming less and less attractive.
