Abstract: This abstract introduces advancements in a Solar Thermal storage technology system and it's relationship to the concept of a balanced Distributed Generation strategy through modified MicroGrids. At the IEEE PES general meeting in 2008 AIE/EPI et al advanced the idea of microgrid integratable technologies. Since 2008 several synergistic technologies and engineering advancements have been made to expand the scope of the earlier proposed MicroGrid model [2]and used as a case study to offer development solutions targeted towards emerging economies. While providing opportunities to solve impending problems facing more developed economies. Similarly, the grids and energy infrastructure of the more developed economies may investigating smart grids would benefit in the very near future from similar solutions. This paper puts forth the concept that integration of several mature, novel and modified adaptations of older technologies can in fact yield high economic efficiencies. The goal of the paper is to further show an alternative approach to providing energy with the flexibility to use this model anywhere. The paper will show approaches to meet the needs of developed and less developed economies and proposes a model that can be scaled from smaller towns to large cities, allowing independence from the grid and from the energy distribution infrastructure for fuels, agricultural chemical, and many raw materials for industry while lowering the carbon footprint. © 2011 IEEE.
