How can partners and customers leverage microgrids and energy as a service? Bala Vinayagam, senior VP from Schneider Electric, provides guidance and perspectives in this Sustainable Tech Partner podcast (Episode 10).

Schneider Electric is a major provider of microgrid energy technology. Microgrids are self-contained electrical networks that allow partners and customers to generate their own electricity on-site -- and to use that energy when they need it most.
