ARDA Power and Advisian sign Teaming Agreement to explore Design & Implementation of replicable Microgrid Solutions using ARDA’s DC Platform
Under a new teaming agreement launched this month, Advisian (The Advisory & Consulting Arm of the WorleyParsons Group) and ARDA Power plan to leverage ARDA’s unique, patented, DC-connected plug-and-play platform for microgrids, and Advisian’s suite of consulting and engineering services focused on new energy markets, to develop, design and implement complete, scalable and replicable microgrid solutions for single-building and multi-site opportunities.
To this partnership, ARDA brings unique proprietary technologies with the promise of creating a step-change in ease of microgrid design and implementation, and significant gains in microgrid efficiency. Advisian brings over 130 years of power industry experience, including deep expertise in microgrid solutions, Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT) and Site Acceptance Testing (SAT) of new technologies, as well as global scale and resources. Together, the team will work to optimize and field-test prototype microgrid packages that can be scaled up to serve specific market verticals.
According to Tristan Jackson, Practice Lead of Advisian’s Smart & Distributed Energy Team, “This is a very exciting opportunity to accelerate the development and deployment of a promising microgrid technology. As the energy transition from centralized and fossil-driven to distributed and renewable moves ahead, at Advisian we are focused on applying our extensive power industry expertise to deliver innovative solutions. Helping early-stage companies prove their technologies and hit milestones on product certifications and pilot projects is a natural fit.”
