Anbaric is a project development company located near Boston, MA that specializes in early stage development of large-scale electric transmission systems (especially controllable DC lines) and small, medium and large scale microgrid projects.
The confluence of transmission and microgrid projects is no accident. Because Anbaric has learned that transmission projects are extraordinarily difficult to permit, develop, finance, and build, it has gained a deep appreciation for “non-transmission alternatives” (NTAs). Because Anbaric is skilled at understanding where transmission should and should not be developed, it has become skilled at understanding where microgrids should be developed.
Moreover, microgrids (more than transmission) present a revolutionary technological potential: the space where high technology meets the massive electrical distribution system. Anbaric believes HVDC transmission projects will largely be developed to connect large-scale renewables to the existing grid, while microgrids will modernize the grid “from the inside out” (from the distribution sector to the bulk transmission sector).
