The business case for nanogrids responds to many of the same arguments used to represent microgrids. These small, modular and flexible distribution networks are contrary to larger-scale economic scale thinking, which has guided energy planning for most of the past. Nanogrids pushes the bottom-up energy paradigm to the limit. In some cases, the business case expressed by the network is even more radical than the microgrid; in other cases, the nanogrid is in peace with the status quo.
