S2E Company is developing a Smart Community in London, Ontario. This community will have the state of the art sustainable practices in community development. This community will be Net ZERO energy which simply means that it has zero net energy consumption and zero carbon emissions annually, minimize water usage, designed with sustainable storm water management, built electric car ready, emphasis Smart Grid technology and demonstrate a microgrid. Smart grid is a new generation of electrical grids that uses information and communications technology and works in an automated manner to improve the efficiency, reliability, economics, and sustainability of the production and distribution of electricity. Microgrid is a set of interconnected consumers and distributed energy resources that has clear electrical boundaries, can be controlled independently with respect to the main grid and can connect and disconnect from the grid to enable it to operate in both grid-connected or free standing mode. It is evident that smart/micro grid is the backbone of this Net Zero community. The proposed study, as its objectives have been outlined above, will focus on control practices and schemes related to this micro grid, which at the end, will provide the industry partner with required information both for feasibility study stage and later on during deployment.
