Generac Power Systems creates Grid Services Group

Sep. 12, 2021

Generac Holdings, Waukesha, Wis., has formed Generac Grid Services. In addition, Bud Vos, currently president of Enbala Power Networks, a Generac subsidiary, has been named president — Generac Grid Services, and will now report to Aaron Jagdfeld, president and CEO.

Generac Grid Services will provide solutions directly to utilities, grid operators and energy markets, leveraging products from across the enterprise including home standby generators, PWRcell storage systems, industrial natural gas generators and others. This will allow Generac Grid Services to create economic and environmental value by delivering turn-key distributed energy assets to customers, grid operators and energy markets, the company says.

“This is another significant step toward our strategic evolution into an energy technology and services company,” said Jagdfeld. “The future of energy is quickly changing as consumers look for alternative ways to generate, store, and manage the power they need to help address the challenges associated with an electrical grid that is outdated. Generac Grid Services will enable our company to provide an array of solutions and an entirely new value stream for our customers.”

Generac Grid Services was formed primarily through the acquisition of Enbala Power Networks in October 2020. Enbala's Concerto software platform is a vendor-agnostic, open solution for virtual power plants (VPP) and distributed energy resource management systems (DERMS). With the Concerto platform, power-generation and storage products that might otherwise sit idle are now able to be dispatched and orchestrated as part of a distributed energy solution, thereby generating value for the home or business owner while also delivering value to the energy grid, the company says.
