Energy Access

1.6 billion people (17% of the global population) do not have access to electricity. Microgrids powered by renewable energy sources can close this gap, providing a stable power source in remote areas without grid infrastructure and reinforcing unstable grids in developing cities.

The Ferntech controller lowers the barriers to deploy these microgrids by simplifying how grid components are integrated, monitored, and managed. Ferntech’s visual programming tools make it possible for grid operators to maintain grids remotely, further decreasing maintenance costs and extending system lifespan.
