As trends in electricity generation shift towards smaller, decentralised and resilient microgrids, there is a growing need for utility grade technology at an affordable scale and price.
We’ve taken the key capabilities from the Distribution Management Systems (DMS) used by energy utilities – metering, SCADA, geospatial information, outage management, load shedding, and asset health – and packaged it with our leading dispatch optimisation technology.
MicroEM™ allows active management of electricity generation and consumption. With real time visibility of your entire network, the system gives you control to schedule electricity generation and enact demand response at peak times when the grid is congested. This unique capability can be partly or fully co-managed through our regional Energy Operations Centres, removing cost and risk for the network owner / operators.
A microgrid is an electricity network either independent from or connected to the main electricity grid. Microgrids typically comprise a collection of distributed energy sources such as embedded generation, renewable technologies and battery storage.
The value proposition of microgrids is compelling:
As microgrids become more resilient they will become less dependent on the grid and use more locally generated energy, resulting in an optimisation of energy assets and costs.
MicroEM™ comprises a suite of services for micro-network and microgrid operators designed to optimise energy usage and inform infrastructure investments in numerous scenarios.

MicroEM™ provides full visibility of the network in real time via the connection of electrical assets to GreenSync’s Peak Response Units (PRUs). The PRUs facilitate a technically superior approach to managing energy operations. The capability to monitor assets in real time provides timely insight into the health of the system and raises alerts of pending fault conditions. Via the PRUs, GreenSync’s analytics systems can forecast loads on feeders, transformers, onsite generators and major electrical loads, and rapidly enact protocols to ensure key systems stay running 24×7.
All MicroEM™ installation systems are optionally monitored through our regional Energy Operations Centres. GreenSync’s network operations team have full oversight of the system in real time, meaning that critical alerts and outages are responded to immediately. This provides a utility grade flexibility and reliability, at an affordable price point for facilities operators.
